Welcome to St. Bernard of Clairvaux
Virtue for the month of MAY
God wants us to make friends with everyone
no matter how different they may look or act.
An acceptance person….
-is willing to treat everybody as a member of a group
-avoids judging others
-is welcoming to those different than himself/herself
-is loving and happy with who he/she is
The virtue of Acceptance means we accept ourselves
and others just the way we are.
Acceptance is the ability to respect the dignity
and rights of people of all ages, beliefs ,
gender, cultures, and/or abilities,
God created all of us in His image,
and belonging to God’s family means that we love a
nd welcome everyone as Jesus did.
Sometimes, we find ourselves in situations
where it is easier to follow the crowd
than to stand up for what we know is right.
Remember that everyone wants to feel like they belong,
and Jesus teaches us to accept everyone, even when it is difficult.
For by the grace given to me,
I say to everyone among you not to think of yourself
more highly than you ought to think,
but to think with sober judgment,
each according to the measure
of faith that God has assigned.
For as in one body we have many members,
and not all the members have the same function,
so we are many, are one body in Christ,
and individually we are members one of another.
We have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us.
Our Daily Prayer for May
Let us know pray….for the virtue of acceptance-the strength to trust that
God is at work in everyone’s life despite what we think.
"God has been very good to me,
for I never dwell upon anything wrong
which a person has done,
so as to remember it afterwards.
If I do remember it,
I always see some other virtue in that person.
~St. Teresa of Avila~
Virtue in Action
Is there something my friends do that I need to speak up against?
Do we encourage each other to act positively or negatively?
