Advice to Students/Favorite Quote

For today, I am the Spirit of Mercy. I am an extension of the healing ministry of Christ. Through me, there is compassion. Through me, there is excellent medical care. Through me, there is kindness and respect for all. Through me, there is home - for today, and for what today will yet bring. The simplest and most practical lesson I know is to resolve to be good today, but better tomorrow. ~ Sisters of Mercy.

God has given each one of us special gifts. We are expected to use them wisely as we serve Him.
