“O My God, when I look into the future, I am frightened, but why plunge into the future? Only the present moment is precious to me, as the future may never enter my soul at all.

It is no longer in my power, to change, correct, or add to the past; for neither sages nor prophets could do that. And so, what the past has embraced, I must entrust to God.

O present moment, you belong to me, whole and entire. I desire to use you as best I can. And although I am weak and small, You grant me the grace of Your omnipotence. And so, trusting in Your mercy, I walk through life like a little child, offering You each day this heart. Burning with love for your greater glory.”    -St. Faustina Kowalska

What’s In A Name?

The word “present” can be used in multiple ways.
As an adjective it encourages you to BE in this moment.
As a verb it reminds you of your calling to GIVE.
And as a noun it inspires us to CHERISH the gifts we are given TODAY.
