Thought for the Day – 3 March
At first St Katharine Drexel was going to give only her fortune to the work of the missions but instead, at the suggestion of the Pope, gave herself. Her long life was spent bringing the faith to others and inspiring others to join her. God wants more than our generosity – He wants us! Perhaps we should look around and see how we might serve Him?
Katharine’s vast inheritance was distributed among her father’s twenty-nine favourite charities. Not a penny went to her own community. She wanted her sisters to live by faith, trusting God—not money—for everything!
St Katharine Drexel, pray for us!
