Feast of St. John of the Cross

From "The Minor Works".

"To lose always and let everyone else win is the trait of valiant souls..." (58)
.
"Take neither great nor little notice of who is with you or against you and try always to please God.  Ask that His will be done in you an.  Love Him intensely, as He deserves to be loved." (76)

  2. Thank you dear Father St John OTC for your prayers...

    Today I closed out one of my engineering work projects that has been a constant thorn in my side...and received TOP SCORES from my evaluators!! Even my boss and dept manager has good compliments on the success of the project!!

    It is days like today that assure me that I am doing God's work and that I'm not supposed to be cloistered in a monastery somewhere..

    Bottoms up!!
