Life of Action..........September 9






"Remember that the Christian life is one of action, not speech and daydreams. Let there be few words and many deeds, and let them be done well."

St. Vincent Pallotti


Translation of French words:

"The Canticle of Alms, or the Blessing promised for works of charity. 'When you assist your brethren, it is I who present your good works before the Most High.' (Words of the angel of Tobiah)" [The angel's name is St. Raphael

"I found the secret of suffering in peace - I don't say joy. To suffer in peace, it is enough to will all that Jesus wills."
St. Thérèse, the Little Flower


May our help be as to Christ and our helping be as if from Him.

Friends,

I noticed that, on the wall above the pillow, there is a little picture of the famous act of charity done by St. Martin of Tours, indicating that he is a role model for someone else in the picture.

St. Martin (on the horse in the picture) gave up his cloak to a beggar. Now it appears that a woman is giving up her cloak to a mother and child. And who is the angel standing by? The caption at the bottom lets us know.

Here is a translation of the French words:

"The Canticle of Alms, or the Blessing promised for works of charity. 'When you assist your brethren, it is I who present your good works before the Most High.' (Words of the angel of Tobiah)" [The angel's name is St. Raphael.]

There is a song going through my head "Fifty Ways to Leave Your Lover"....I'm feeling like my song today is "Fifty Ways to say Thank You." I'm at a loss to say Thank You any differently than a simple "Thank You" to all who leave comments.
