- Allow John’s urging to influence your day’s sense of generosity.
- What has been your response to the victims of the shootings in Chicago IL or Paradise CA and other areas of senseless violence?

Heritage word—“If the spirit that moves us is His Spirit, we love one another; and in the joy of that love we are at peace.”
(Sister Mary Arthur, 7thProvincial of the Toledo Province)
