Principles and Practices - November 24


Anything we can do to protect and brighten the home - our own first, and any other we can influence, is well worth an output of labour, ingenuity, and tact - by which we mean those little thoughtful attentions which do so much to strengthen its hold and make the wheels run smoothly. To keep this steadily before us is a worthier object than a constant round of excitement and pleasure. To lead a consistent Catholic life in our home and neighbourhood, utilizing our opportunities and being ready for little sacrifices, is no small service of God.
