Thought for the Day – 7 April
St John Baptiste de la Salle stumbled upon his life’s work, quite by accident and had to draw into and upon, all his inner strength to accomplish the mission given to him. He was faced with something entirely new and had to find new ways to do this work. Discouragement dogged his every step but he carried on knowing that it was not his work but belonged to God. Faith and boldness go together, faith, courage and strength go together, faith and zeal for the work of God go together – we have only to ask the Lord, in our faith for the boldness, the courage and strength and the zeal!
St John Baptste de la Salle, pray for us!
