Posted in MORNING Prayers, SAINT of the DAY

Thought for the Day – 8 March

The utter humility of John of God, which led to a totally selfless dedication to others, is most impressive.   Here is a man who realised his nothingness in the face of God.   The Lord blessed him with the gifts of prudence, patience, courage, enthusiasm and the ability to influence and inspire others.   He saw that in his early life he had turned away from the Lord and, moved to receive his mercy, John began his new commitment to love others in openness to God’s love.   It is amazing what good we can do for others if we only put our mind and hearts to it and don’t count the cost and don’t worry about who gets the credit! For all his work and pains, many thought St John of God was a lunatic but it didn’t stop him.   He gave back good for persecution!   An example to us all.

St John of God, Pray for us!
