My liturgical reminder...

In honor of St. Martha's Day, Mary sent me the following quotes in an email this morning:

"Worries go down better with soup than without."
--Yiddish Proverb

"Worry and pessimism is dissatisfaction with the past, distaste for the present, and distrust of the future. It is ingratitude for the blessings of yesterday, indifference to the opportunities of today, and insecurity regarding strength for tomorrow. It is unawareness of the presence of beauty, unconcern for the needs of our fellowman, and unbelief in the promises of old. It is impatience with time, immaturity of thought, and impoliteness to God."
--William Arthur Ward

Happy Saint Martha's Day to all those moms and caretakers out there... Don't forget to spend time at Jesus's feet; it is the better part and will not be taken from you.
