For today ....

A Word of Scripture

We must never get tired of doing good, and then we shall get our harvest at the proper time. While we have the chance, we must do good to all, and especially to our brothers in the faith.

Galatians 6: 9-10

A Thought for Today

What are we trying to do? We are trying to get to Heaven, all of us. We are trying to lead a good life. We are trying to talk about and write about the Sermon on the Mount, the Beatitudes, the social principles of the Church, and it is most astounding, the things that happen when you start trying to live this way.
