Stir up your trust in the infinite goodness of God.
Give honor to your Creator
by leaving the care of your person
in the hands of God.
Don’t be troubled about the present or
disquieted about the future,
but be concerned only
about the moment you must now live.
Do not let the anticipation of tomorrow
be a burden on the day that is passing.
What you lack in the evening,
the new morning will bring you,
if you know how to hope in God.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
