Thought for the Day – 19 May
St Celestine V tasted bitterly his own failure but this did not prevent him from being a saint. When he realised that he was in the wrong place, he quickly did something about it, whatever the consequences. To admit failure, particularly in a place of importance and public scrutiny, takes a rare kind of courage and that kind of courage is the stuff that saints are made of. Say no more!
St Pope Celestine V, please pray for us, that we may have the courage to admit our failures.
