Quote of the Day
Today’s words of wisdom come from St. Francis of Assisi, who advised: “Remember that when you leave this earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received… but only what you have given: a full heart, enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice, and courage.”
Thanks for your attention. Ametur Cor Jesu!
