I have come to fall in love with teaching in Catholic schools. What are YOU in love with?...

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." - Pedro Arrupe

Good Morning

After hitting the snooze button on my alarm for the umpteenth time this morning, I sat up in bed and prayed these three simple phrases:

 I love you.
I need you.
I thank you.

And then I briefly repeated each phrase one at a time, and I followed each one with a specific qualifier that seemed suited to my day. (So, as you can imagine, most of the "qualifiers" today had to do with the end of the school year.)

The group of phrases is straightforward, simple, and short. This is definitely a new habit I am going to work hard to keep.

Happy Monday...


  1. 1 more day!
    Good prayer- where did you find it? :)

  2. That reminds me of my quick examination of conscience I do at Night Prayer: Thank you; I'm sorry; Tomorrow. :)
