St. Katharine Drexel (1858-1955) 
If your father is an international banker and you ride in a private railroad
car, you are not likely to be drawn into a life of voluntary poverty. But if
your mother opens your home to the poor three days each week and your father
spends half an hour each evening in prayer, it is not impossible that you
will devote your life to the poor and give away millions of dollars.
Katharine Drexel did that.  For more, click the link below:

Thus says the LORD: Lo, I am about to create new heavens and a new earth;
The things of the past shall not be remembered
or come to mind.  ~ Isaiah 65:17-21 

Jesus said to him, "Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will not
believe." The royal official said to him,
"Sir, come down before my child dies." Jesus said to him, "You may go; your
son will live." The man believed what Jesus said to him and left. While the
man was on his way back, his slaves met him and told him that his boy would
live. ~ John 4:43-54

What is it that causes us to believe?  Jesus suggests that it takes signs
and wonders, and still people have a difficult time.  WE can be inspired
today by the royal official whose son was ill.  He believed what Jesus said,
and Jesus healed him without even coming to his house. May we have such
faith in Jesus ourselves!

.=: P R A Y E R    F O R    T H E    D A Y :=. 

I pray that I may believe without seeing.  I pray that, as I'm inspired by
the faith of others, that still others may be inspired by mine!
