Saint Joseph Pattern of Patience catholic blog Jul 16, 2021
How blessed are we that we have a saint who is a great model of patience!  It can be so hard to be patient in the face of obstacles.  However, St. Joseph displayed patience consistently throughout his life.  We can only imagine what he felt when he could not find a place for the birth of Jesus or had to live in exile in Egypt.  In every circumstance, St. Joseph chose to be patient.  May we do the same.

Deacon Steve Greco: Lord, Help Me Always to Speak the Truth

Excerpt from Deacon Steve Greco's 2014 book 365 Days of Praise for April 19:

Proverbs 12:22 “Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD,/but those who are truthful are his delight.”

Have you ever lied? How did you feel in your spirit and soul? I know, you thought you had a good reason. It was to protect the innocent or some other rationalization that sounded good at the time. However, deep down you knew the truth, but you didn’t have the courage to “speak” the truth. Was there a time when you did speak the truth, and you felt the peace of the Lord? You felt His presence and love?

Lord, help me always to speak the truth, no matter the cost. I praise You for being the God of truth, for You are the way, the truth and the life.

When do you feel weak and tell lies or half-truths to those in your life? In your personal life? At work?

365 Days of Praise is available through the ministry bookstore.
