Novena for Life VIII

To surrender oneself is more than to devote oneself, more than to give oneself, it is even something more than to abandon oneself to God. In a word, to surrender oneself is to die to everything and to self, to be no longer concerned with self except to keep it continually turned toward God. ~~Saint Marie Victoire Couderc~~

We pray.

  1. "be no longer concerned with self except to keep it continually turned toward God."

    I only pray that one day I may be even a little bit close to understanding this properly.

    Thanks for sharing.
    God Bless

  2. By the way, yesterday I noticed
    " Saint John the gardener, servant of God" as Saint of the day in your sidebar.
    My Father is named John and he is also a gardener! So I thought I'd research a little and print an info sheet about "Saint John" out for my Dad to read. He was really chuffed, he hadn't heard of him before!
    Just thought I'd pass that along :0)
