“Once again you are coming to the close of another year of life and of work for God. Here is one more reason for you to adore and praise his infinite goodness and mercy in having guarded, protected, and preserved you. This year has passed, and in the same way, our life will pass. We will appear before our Lord and God with the fruits and labors we accomplished for him. Our King and Master will not leave unrewarded any effort of ours or any sacrifice…”

Blessed Mary of Jesus the Good Shepherd (Frances Siedliska)
