Margaret Anna Fridays

Most Fridays I am going to share some words of wisdom from the founder of my religious community, Margaret Anna Cusack, known in religion as Mother Francis Clare. Today's Installment is from her Book of the Blessed Ones written in 1874:

We read in the holy gospels that “Jesus went about all Galilee teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom and healing all manner of sickness, and every infirmity among the people” (St. Matt. iv. 23). And we also, my pilgrim friends, may go about the Galilee of this world, and preach “the gospel of the kingdom.” It is a gospel of peace, it is a gospel of love, it is a gospel of mercy; it is a gospel for the poor, for the little ones, who live near to the Heart of God.
