Express Joy and Happiness for Your Friends

Adult Friend Temperance
Day 10: Humility

Express joy and happiness for your friends when something good happens for/to them first, even if this is something you wish for but do not have yourself.

Romans 15:13 (RSV)
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.

 


Today’s Saint: St. Bonaventure
St. Bonaventure lived at the same time as the great St. Thomas Aquinas, and he was equally renowned for his knowledge. He and Aquinas were both asked to write an office for the celebration of the new feast of Corpus Christi. When Bonaventure saw the office that Aquinas had written, he did not even finish his. In his humility he saw that what Aquinas had written was much more worthy to be prayed by the Church.
