A Sunday Thought.
From the church bulletin today:
"Grace and goodness come from God...We are not the sole authors of our own story. What does come from us, though, are the decisions we make in the face of the graces we receive. We can either respond to each life grace and become what we might be in every situation, what ever the effort, or we can reject the impulses that the magnet in us called goodness brings in favor of being less than we ought to be. It is in those decisions that we must bend our lives to the better." -- Joan Chittester, The Rule of Benedict
