Thought for the Day – 17 January – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)
The Vicissitudes of Life
“Let this be our resolution and the result of our meditation.
When we are tempted to sin, especially against holy purity, let us resist immediately and take flight.
When we encounter misunderstanding on the part of others, or even coldness or calumny, or injustice, let us not be depressed or annoyed.
The only thing which should concern us, is the evidence of our conscience before God.
Offer everything else to God – joy or sorrow, praise or blame, honour or humilition.
Ask only for His grace.
If we have that, we shall have peace of mind as well.”
