Feast of Saint Quentin

Good morning. How often we assess a situation for what we are likely to gain from it. What’s in this for me? What will I get in return? We too often look to others from the position of me versus thee. In today’s Gospel Jesus reminds us we are to give without consideration for what we are to receive in return. “Rather, when you hold a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind; blessed indeed will you be because of their inability to repay you. For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.” The joy of giving to others is in the giving. This is not to assume that in marriage we are to expect just one spouse to carry the entire responsibility of giving. No, marital love is a mutual responsibility. If we greet each day with the intention of making each other happy, we’ll likely be happy in return. Make a great day!

Today we recall the good life, gifts, and works of Saint Quentin.

Happy Birthday to my Companion and Bride of 30 years!
