Blessed Angela Truszkowska (1825-1899)

Today we honor a woman who submitted to God's will throughout her life-a
life filled with pain and suffering.
Born in 1825 in central Poland and baptized Sophia, she contracted
tuberculosis as a young girl. The forced period of convalescence gave her
ample time for reflection. Sophia felt called to serve God by working with
the poor, including street children and the elderly homeless in Warsaw's
slums. In time, her cousin joined her in the work. For more, follow the link

Beyond health and comeliness I loved her, and I chose to have her rather
than the light, because the splendor of her never yields to sleep. Yet all
good things together came to me in her company, and countless riches at her
hands.  ~Wisdom 7:7-11

Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said to him, "You are lacking in one
thing. Go, sell what you have, and give to the poor and you will have
treasure in heaven; then come, follow me." At that statement his face fell,
and he went away sad, for he had many possessions. ~Matthew 10:17-30

How good it is for us to love and cherish wisdom.  And even better when we
put it to good use.  It is so easy for us to forget the important things in
life when we become distracted by possessions.  We don't want to be like the
man whose face fell as he went away sad, for he had many possessions.

I pray that I may have God's wisdom. I pray that I may follow God with all
my heart and not be distracted by the things of this world.
