Friday

Fourth Week of Advent

Our Own Fiat

It makes no difference what you do here on earth; what matters is the love with which you do it.  The street cleaner who accepts in God's name a cross arising from his state in life, such as the scorn of his peers; the mother who pronounces her fiat to the Divine Will as she raises a family for the kingdom of God; the afflicted in hospitals who say fiat to their cross of suffering are the uncanonized saints, for what is sanctity but fixation in goodness by abandonment to God's Holy Will?

Commit your way to the Lord;

trust in him, and he will act.

Psalm 37:5
