I am a Jewish convert to Catholicism, blogging on a variety of subjects.
The motto for this blog is:
"Rejoice always, pray constantly,
give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Revised Standard Version, Catholic Edition.
I love this quote from my Patron Saint, Therese of Lisieux, whose feast we celebrate today: "Pick up a pin for the love of God, and you may save a soul." How right, how wise! We may not be called to do great things, but we can do the little, everyday tasks for the love of God, and then how great, how valuable those little tasks become. No work is menial if it is done for the love of God.
