Communion Reflection

Blessed are those who have found their work.
I often feel that I am as rich as Croesus, not in money, but rich because I have found in my work something to which I can devote myself heart and soul,
and which gives meaning and inspiration to my life.
I think it a very great blessing when people find their work, and even though I have lots of difficulties, and there are many gloomy days in my life, I count myself among the fortunate.

If at times I feel rising within me the desire for a life of ease, I go back fondly to a life of hardship, convinced that I learn more from it.
This is not the road on which one perishes.
Vincent Van Gough

Forgiveness

Forgiveness works the miracle of change.
When Abraham Lincoln was asked why he did not destroy his enemies, he replied. “If I make my enemies my friends, do I not therefore destroy them”
The art of forgiveness consists in having a humble spirit.
When you forgive you change yourself and other people as well.
You free yourself from the burden of bitterness and you loose others from the chain of guilt
Forgiveness works two ways: you must forgive in order to be forgiven.
Those who cannot forgive break down the bridge over which they themselves must pass, for everybody needs to be forgiven.
Forgiveness should start now. Putting it off only deepens the wound.
Clinging to bitterness postpones happiness.
Life is too short, time is fleeting.
Today is the day to forgive.

St. Mother Teresa’s Prayer.
People are often unreasonable, irrational 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 unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and sincere, people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.
Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.    Saint Mother Teresa
