Gift of Goodness

Gift of Goodness – November 6, 2021

A bit of goodness to start your day.

A soul of kindness.

Pope John XXIII is often referred to as “the Good Pope.” It is a testament to his affable nature and his generous heart. He visited sick children in the hospital and embraced those in reformatory school with loving acceptance. His famous “moonlight speech” on the opening night of the Second Vatican Council was delivered impromptu from his apartment window to the crowds below. He told them to go home and hug and kiss their children.

Let us continue to love each other, to look out for each other along the way: to welcome whoever comes close to us and set aside whatever difficulty it might bring.

Pope John XXIII

Today I’m choosing to notice the random acts of kindness that do prevail among us and reflect on ways I can serve others.
