“The best way to show your gratitude to God and people is to accept everything with joy. A joyful heart is the normal result of a heart burning with love. Joy is prayer; joy is strength; joy is love, a net of love by which you can catch souls”. Mother Teresa, Jesus, p. 127
Simple acts of kindness can make a profound difference in another person’s life. An encouraging word, a welcoming smile, letting someone know that you believe in them, or offering support in difficult times are all ways to manifest God’s love. As a parish let us be ever mindful of living with a heart burning with love.
There are many opportunities at St. Mary’s to give with a joyful heart. Everyone has been blessed with special gifts and talents and using these gifts for the benefit of those in need enlivens one’s faith and enriches the life of another.
