READY FOR BIG SURPRISE
This should have been Posted Yesterday. But what Angela has to say is good for today and every day. On the 27th of January, the Catholic world celebrates the feast of Saint Angela Merici. Here’s a nugget of wisdom and a challenge from the prologue of “Counsels of Angela Merici”.
“Do something. Get moving. Be confident. Risk new things. Stick with it. Get on your knees. Then be ready for big surprises.”
As translated by Sr. Terry Eppridge, OSU and as quoted in Ann M. Garrido, Redeeming Administration (Ave Maria Press, 2013) page 19
The original in Italian reads:
“Fate, muovetevi, credete, sforzatevi, sperate, gridate a lui col vostro cuore, e senza dubbio vedrete cose mirabili, dirigendo tutto a lode e gloria della sua maestà e al bene delle anime.”
Santa Angela Merici, Ricordi, Prologue 17,18
