Thoughts for December 17 from Fr Willie Doyle

A want of will is the chief obstacle to our becoming saints. We are not holy because we do not really wish to become so. We would indeed gladly possess the virtues of the saints – their humility and patience, their love of suffering, their penance and zeal. But we are unwilling to embrace all that goes to make a saint and to enter on the narrow path which leads to sanctity. A strong will, a resolute will, is needed; a will which is not to be broken by difficulties or turned aside by trifling obstacles; a determination to be a saint and not to faint and falter because the way seems long and hard and narrow. A big heart, a courageous heart, is needed for sanctification, to fight our worst enemy – our own self-love.

  1. While not everyone can afford expenmsive designer dresses, some
    produce ready-to-wear fashnions for those less-affluent.
    Without the correct mind-set you have little or no chance of succeeding.
    Casual dresses can be worn where the environment is very informal.
    Does blue-red or orange-red look more flattering on you.
