To our Amazing Parish,
If you hope to succeed in whatever you do, place your trust totally in God’s providence. Cooperate with him, then rest secure that whatever happens, you will be best for you.
Think of a little child walking with her father. One hand clings tightly to his, but with the other she gathers fruit from the trees along the way. Imitate the child. With one hand go ahead and gather what you need of the world’s good things, but with the other hold on to your heavenly Father, checking regularly whether or not he approves of what you are doing with your life.
Above all, beware of letting go of your Father to free up both of your hands to gather more of the world’s goods. You will find that by yourself you will stumble and fall.
And when your gathering does not require all of your attention, turn your mind to God as often as you can. Like a sailor returning to port, look to the sky and not just to the waves that carry you.
(Set Your Heart Free, St. Francis de Sales)
God Bless you as you continue journeying!
