MEDITATION – on the Mondays during October.
ST. TERESA OF CALCUTTA — is reported to have pinned a version of the following meditation on her wall: People are often unreasonable, illogical and self- centred; forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish ulterior motives; be kind anyway. If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; be kind and frank anyway. What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; build anyway. The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; do good anyway. Give the world the best you have got and it may never be enough; give the world the best you have got anyway. You see in the final analysis, it is between you and your God . It was never between you and them.’

HILAIRE BELLOC -‘the Catholic Church is divine, and the proof of it I take to be this: that no purely human institution conducted with such knavish imbecility would have lasted more than five minutes.’!!
