Going back to your childhood, I bet you can you remember certain kids, some good and a few not so good, who were leaders ... most likely some of you can be counted among them.
Each of us, through our actions and words, is a leader; and through our baptism, a Christian leader.
Today’s saint, Frances Xavier Cabrini offers a wonderful example; especially if we feel like we’ve hit a road block in life. St. Cabrini’s story reminds us that through learning about God’s will and how it is to be lived, we are capable of doing more than we can even imagine.
How is God calling you to be a Christian leader in your home, at work, parish or school? Pray about this with your family as well as during your day … always seeking God’s guidance, inspiration and strength.
