God does not give us anything that we cannot handle. While we will be tested we will also be given the necessary strength to endure these tests. Our strength comes from God and as we persevere in prayer we will get to know the great God more and be given grace abundantly to live our lives. Today we will practice a ten minute time of listening to Our Lord in silent prayer.Look at Blessed Junipero Serra, a Franciscan priest who persisted in the foundation of 9 Cathoic missions in California. Over 5,000 Indians came to know God.Draw Blessed Junipero Serra.
