If you would be loved, love and be lovable.                   – Benjamin Franklin

 

We all want to be loved. And no matter how much we’re loved, we always want more. How can we be lovable? What does this mean? Should we try to be perfect? Should we act cute and helpless? No, being lovable means that we act ourselves. We let others get to know us. When others love us, we enjoy it. We tell them. We let them know that their love isn’t wasted on us, that it’s important to us. We are lovable, and we are loved!

Prayer for the Day. Higher Power, help me accept the love of others today. Help me be lovable.

Action for the Day. Today, I’ll list all the little things others do that show they care

ST. PATRICK SCHOOL WOULD LIKE YOUR HELP.  Can you spare a morning or afternoon each week to join the school Reading Volunteers?  We are looking to expand our team of volunteers to spend time exploring and reading books, as many children would benefit from more time reading with an adult.   Interested in sharing your love of reading?   Request forms can be found at the back of the church.  Please return to the school by 22nd September 2017.  Thanking you in advance.
