Lord, Thank you for the great gifts… [St. John of the Cross]

Today is the Christian feast of St. John of the Cross. The Hopi & Zuni Festival of Shalako continues today.

Success in life has nothing to do with what you gain in life or accomplish for yourself. It’s what you do for others.
~ Danny Thomas

Lord,
Thank you for the great gifts of this world, especially for the great gifts of each other.
And as we grow in the community, through our love for one another, give us the strength to
accept the challenge of service. Help us to realize the needs of Your children and deepen our
commitment to meet those needs. Never let us become preoccupied with our human
accomplishments, but teach us to know that all things come from You.
Amen.
