‘All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing’ – Edmund Burke Irish Political 11thsunC3Philospher

 

‘Make us worthy, Lord, to serve those people throughout the world who live and die in poverty and hunger. Give them through our hands, this day, their daily bread, and by our understanding love, give them peace and joy.  I heard the call to give up all and follow Christ into the slums to serve Him among the poorest of the poor.  It was an order.  I was to leave the convent and help the poor while living among them.‘

Blessed Teresa of Calcutta

 

May the road rise up to meet you,

‘May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine upon your face,

And the rains fall soft upon your fields.

And, until we meet again, may God

hold you in the palm of His hand.’

Celtic Blessing

 

‘People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives.  Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you.  Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous.  Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow.  Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.


For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.’  –
Blessed Teresa of Calcutta


‘If you want happiness for an hour,  take a nap

If you want happiness for a day, go fishing,

If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune,

If you want happiness for life, help somebody’ Chinese Proverb
