Helps Me Take Me Less Seriously And God More Seriously

by Polly

I have a calendar that has a different quote from a saint each day. This quote makes me laugh at how hard I work to fix things myself and reminds me how silly I am trying to do alone what God and I can do together with ease:

The man who doesn't pray is like a chicken or a turkey, which can't rise into the air. they may fly a little, but they soon have to come down.... The man who prays, on the other hand, is like a fearless eagle, and seems to always to want to get closer to the sun.

Fourth Rosary Promise
The rosary will make virtue and good works flourish, and will obtain for souls the most abundant divine mercies. It will draw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
