Faith & Values

 

People are often unreasonable,
illogical, 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
false friends and some true enemies
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank,
people may cheat you,
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building
someone could destroy overnight
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness,
they may be jealous,
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today
people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have,
and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis
it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

For our Priests and Vocations

Lord God,
you are our eternal shepherd and guide.
In your mercy grant your Church shepherds
who will walk in your ways and whose watchful care will brings us your blessing.
We ask this through Jesus Christ the Lord. Amen.

I will raise up for myself a faithful priest; he will do what is in my heart and in my mind, says the Lord.
1 Sm 2:35
