Thought for the Day – 4 January
Mother Elizabeth Seton had no extraordinary gifts, she seems almost like the neighbour down the street. She was not a mystic or stigmatic. She did not prophesy or speak in tongues. She had two great devotions: abandonment to the will of God and an ardent love for the Blessed Sacrament. She wrote to a friend, Julia Scott, that she would prefer to exchange the world for a “cave or a desert.” “But God has given me a great deal to do and I have always and hope always to prefer His will to every wish of my own.” Her brand of sanctity is open to everyone if we love God and do his will.
St Elizabeth Ann Seton Pray for us!
