Today, don't burden yourself with believing you, personally, are responsible for solving all the world's problems. Trust Love more. Trust other people's capacities more. Be faithful to the responsibilities that have been entrusted to you, with less anxiety about the results. Mother Teresa says, "We are not called to be successful, but to be faithful." Father Gregory Doyle writes, "If you surrender your need for results and outcomes, success becomes God's business." Be steady and attentive to your own duties and relationships, and let go.
