Daily Catholic Quote from Venerable Fulton J. Sheen

Venerable Fulton J. Sheen

Venerable Fulton J. Sheen

“In what does your life consist except two things: (1) active duties; and (2) passive circumstances. The first is under your control; these do in God’s name. The second is outside your control; these submit to in God’s name. Consider only the present; leave the past to God’s justice, the future to his providence. Perfection of personality does not consist in knowing God’s plan, but in submitting to it as it reveals itself in the circumstances of life.” (Archbishop Fulton Sheen; The Seven Words of Jesus and Mary)
