Mary Magdalene, the Ointment-Bearer and Equal of the Apostles (July 22)

Thought for the Day

"How can we radiate the joy of salvation when we constantly worry needlessly? Obedience, chastity, poverty…where is the shame of these in the eyes of God? Yes, the world calls these shames, and tempts us with earthly pleasures. Yet, we know that even with financial security, fame and power, a man can be perfectly miserable. Happiness is found within us, when we genuinely trust in God’s providence." -- His Eminence, Metropolitan JOSEPH
