““But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God which is with me.”
– 1 Corinthians 15:10
Live the Faith! Tip of the Week:
What weekly or daily commitments have you made to the Lord or to your family? What desires do they stem from? Recall these desires and renew these commitments this week. By staying true to our plan of life day in and day out, we put ourselves in the optimal space to receive and cooperate with the graces God desires to give us.
O merciful God, grant that I may desire ardently, search prudently, recognize truly, and bring to perfect completion whatever is pleasing to You for the praise and glory of Your name.
Put my life in good order, O my God…
Give to me, O Lord my God, understanding of You, diligence in seeking You, wisdom in finding You, discourse ever pleasing to You, perseverance in waiting for You, and confidence in finally embracing You.
You Who live and reign, God, world without end. Amen.
– St. Thomas Aquinas
