Feast of Saint Boniface (5 June 2017)

Recently, a friend of mine gave me the following.  It’s called, “Words to Live By” and was composed by [Saint] Teresa of Calcutta.  I find it worthwhile sharing it with you—

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered.  Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.  Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies.  Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you.  Be honest and frank anyway.

When you spend years building, someone can destroy overnight.  Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous.  Be happy anyway.

The good you do today people will often forget tomorrow.  Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough.  Give the world the best you have anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God.  It was never between you and them anyway.

Thank you for seeking God’s truth.  God bless you.  Father Victor Brown, O.P.

Note:  Father Brown composed this message some years ago.  Please pray for the souls of the faithful departed, including Father Brown.
