So Where Do We Start?

St. Francis of Assisi once said, ‘I want what God wants. That is why I am merry.’

Setting our mind on the Spirit means asking for the grace to really want what God wants and then taking concrete steps to make that happen. Do that, and we will have life and peace. We will be merry!

There is a simplicity to that thought which can scarcely be matched. And the best way to discover that is not to spend a lot of time reading about it (St. Francis was never much for books anyway) but to stop—-now—-and start doing it.

So…get out there and carpe diem!

God our Father in Heaven, grant us the strength to stand up and serve You, always being an ambassador of Your love. And through our service to others, in Your name, may we continue to grow closer to You each day. We pray this in Christ's name. Amen

How Can We Tell When Morning Comes?
