“Remember the past with gratitude. Live the present with Enthusiasm. Look forward to the future with confidence.”- St. John Paul II

A simple admonition from a saint, but maybe hard to live by the sinners we are. We may find ourselves saying: We remember the past with regret. We live the present with fear. We face the future with anxiety. And we wonder why we have such a negative attitude about life? This is not what inspired the saints like St. Paul who said: “And let the peace of Christ control your hearts, the peace into which you were also called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, as in all wisdom you teach and admonish one another, singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or in deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” (Colossians 3:15-17)

 

This is how we can “remember the past with gratitude; live the present with enthusiasm; look forward to the future with confidence.” Thanks be to God!
