Words of Inspiration: January 18

I have two very difficult classes this semester, which are taking up more time than I originally thought. However, everything is going very well so far. So, please forgive the delay in the Saint for the Year Devotion as well as the lack of posts.

Archbishop Fulton Sheen:

"In other ages, though men lost virtue, they still admired it; though they ran from the battlefield at the first need of courage, they still admired the hero who fought and suffered; though they threw away the map of the roadway of life, they never denied the need of a map. But, in our generation, men look for shadow in the radiance of every virtue.”

Blessed Mother Teresa:

"We have to give until it hurts. We need to give from the resources we would like to keep for ourselves. We need to give to the point of sacrificing. We must give something that we find hard to give up."

Unfortunately, I think, in *our* generation, we don't "look for the shadow" in every virtue, we celebrate the vices. Its very sad.
