“Our love of God is always opposed by our self-love, our love of one another by the miserable pride and pretension which creates jealousy, rash judgment and the pitiful dislikes and impatience which so often trouble us and wound charity.” (CW 3a:259)
– St. Elizabeth Ann Seton

– Expand my heart, Lord, that pettiness may have no place in my life nor cause the loss of charity among my family and community.
