The punchline from a current TV advert states that “the little things we do,protect the little things we love”. We are all recognising the preciousness of the most ordinary aspects of life we have previously taken for granted. The pandemic also makes us reassess our top priorities and gain a new perspective upon the divine gifts of family, friends and even time itself.
Saint Teresa of Calcutta‘s daily mindset dedicated herto “do something beautiful for God”. This profound ‘catch-phrase’ challenges us as it nestles in our consciousness. Her words have the potential to change our lives for good: “Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We only have today. Let us begin”.
