Read the daily quote from Pope Francis

 

Open to surprises

“One who serves is open to surprises, to God’s constant surprises. A servant knows how to open the doors of his time and inner space for those around him, including those who knock on those doors at odd hours, even if that entails setting aside something he likes to do or giving up some well-deserved rest. One who serves is not worried about the timetable.” — Pope Francis

Reflection: Do you like surprises? Why or why not? Have you ever been surprised by someone asking for your help? What did you learn about God or yourself in this situation? Are you ever become frustrated that a change or project is not showing results fast enough? Take a few moments to offer your responses to Jesus, the patient servant, and invite freedom from worry.
