It seems everybody has their idea about what peace is and how to achieve it, especially for others. The deal is though, not many want to do what’s truly necessary to get there.

 

John 14:27

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.

Mercy is not the least of the beatitudes. Let us lay hold of this blessing, let us earn the name of being considerate, let us be generous. Not even night should interrupt you in your duty of mercy. There should be no delay between your intention and your good deed. Generosity is the one thing that cannot admit of delay.

St Gregory of Nazianzen

 

Psalm 112:5

Good will come to those who are generous and lend freely,
who conduct their affairs with justice.

Love is kept uncorrupted by temperance, undisturbed by fortitude, obedient to God by justice and discerning by prudence.

St. Augustine

 

Titus 2:11-14

For the grace of God has appeared, saving all and training us to reject godless ways and worldly desires and to live temperately, justly, and devoutly in this age, as we await the blessed hope, the appearance of the glory of the great God and of our savior Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to deliver us from all lawlessness and to cleanse for himself a people as his own, eager to do what is good.

A DAILY DOSE       SUNDAY, JANUARY 24, 2016 


The person who possesses Christian meekness is affectionate and tender towards everyone: he is disposed to forgive and excuse the frailties of others; the goodness of his heart appears in a sweet affability that influences his words and actions, presents every object to his view in the most charitable and pleasing light.

St. Francis de Sales

 

1 Peter 3:3-4

Your adornment should not be an external one: braiding the hair, wearing gold jewelry, or dressing in fine clothes, but rather the hidden character of the heart, expressed in the imperishable beauty of a gentle and calm disposition, which is precious in the sight of God.

A DAILY DOSE       SATURDAY, JANUARY 23, 2016
