St. Rose of Viterbo
"I die with joy, for I desire to be united to my God. Live so as not to fear death. For those who live well in the world, death is not frightening, but sweet and precious." St. Rose of Viterbo
One more thing: St. Paul again reminds me today how to live well in the world. He also gives me an important parenting tip. He admonishes his readers as beloved children, avoiding shame. I have to be careful that my correction toward my children is always tempered with love. Sometimes I can be so upset with them that I want to see them hang their head so I know they got the message. However, that's not how Christ treats me.
Prayer: Lord Jesus,thank you for showing me how to live and how to parent. Help me to live well in the world, following your example. In your precious name I pray, Amen. St. Rose, pray for me.
