Nothing seems tiresome or painful when you are working for a Master who pays well; who rewards even a cup of cold water given for love of Him - Saint Dominic de Silos.

Heavenly Father, let me turn to You in good times and in bad. Grant that I may always remain in loving union with you, no matter what adversity or goodness should befall me. As Saint Dominic de Silos lived his life, when he was exiled, he found another way to give You honor, and through this adversity, You filled his work with miracles. So, too, may it be in my life. Amen.
