Life is to live and life is to give and talents are to use for good if you choose.
Do not pray for easy lives; pray to be strong.
Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks, then the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but you shall be a miracle.
Every day you shall wonder at yourself... at the richness of life which has come to you by the grace of God.
But everyone needs someone - knowing that somewhere someone is thinking of you.
Prayer used by Fr. Solanus who adapted it from a poem by Phillips Brooks
