Bring It On!

“Observe that we gain more in a single day by trials which come to us from God and our neighbor than we would in ten years by penances and other exercises, which we take up of ourselves.”

                                                                        St. Teresa of Avila


For Reflection:             

Read Luke 3. Make a list of the trials endured by the Blessed Mother in this chapter of Sacred Scripture. How can her example and the above quotation of St. Teresa of Avila help me to see the great treasure hidden in the contradictions and sufferings of daily life?
