“Since God has entrusted to you the care of the family, he will impart to you the requisite qualities for the proper discharge of that duty. Let him act and do not be disturbed when things go against your wishes. Be particularly on your guard not to give pain to anyone but be a consolation to all.”
– St. Vincent de Paul

– Lord, leadership requires a special set of virtues especially when care of souls is involved. If that function is required of me, I beg you to endow me with the qualities of a true servant, always ready to listen and support those under my care.
