Today's Marianist Thought

Mrs. Pereda and John O'Grady at Queen of Peace Residence

Sacrifice comes from two Latin words meaning "to make sacred." In the Christian dispensation we sacrifice whenever we offer a perceived good to God. Whether it be a kind action, a kind thought, or a kind word, when we offer it to God, we make a sacrifice.

Oh, God, I want to make my whole life a sacrifice! Only I don't know how! Perhaps if only I can offer my whole life to God, I can make a sacrifice pleasing in the sight of the Almighty.
