St. Angela Reflection
May 2013 St. Angela Reflection
“Seek and desire all the ways and means necessary to persevere and make progress to the very end.” Prologue to the Rule
This is another instance in which Angela had an understanding of the human condition. Our initial efforts are not enough; we must be constant and persevering in our efforts to the final day. In other words, our total commitment with which we started the year is still in play. In the beginning we were reminded by our daily “Soli Deo Gloria” motto that all we do we do for God and not just for our glory.
Often we don’t know how effective we might have been. What we do know is that our very presence and efforts did make a difference with someone, somewhere, somehow. It is a good feeling to know what we accomplished and that we persevered to the end.
St. Angela said, “You have to thank (God) infinitely that, to you especially, was granted such a singular gift.”
