To be learned and able to discuss the Trinity will get you nowhere without humility, and therefore displease the Holy Trinity. Lofty words will never save you or make you a Saint; only a virtuous life makes you dear to God. It is better to experience contrition than to be able to define it. --Thomas a Kempis

A Small Prayer
At the end of this semester, Father, allow us the opportunity to see your kingdom in our small, seemingly insignificant actions. Nourish our spirits enough to reach the depths of your love in offering a smile. Help us to imagine and discern new possibilities for living fully alive as we give away our attention. Provide us relief, Lord, from our constant conformity to busyness. And strengthen us as you transform our lives according to your business. We trust you with every small, yeast-like, kingdom-oriented action. Amen.
