The Mission Statement Of John Henry Newman

I just wanted to share with you the mission of Cardinal Newman. A true testament of faith in the all powerful love of the God who created us:

If only we could be as open to life and God as this man was!

God Has created me to do some definite service.
God has committed some work to me
which God has not committed to another.
I have my mission.
I may never know it in this life
but I shall be told it in the next.
I am a link in a chain,
A bond of connection between persons.

God has not created me for naught.
I shall do good—I shall do God’s work
I shall be an angel of peace
A preacher of truth in my own place
while not intending it
if I do but keep the commandments.

Therefore I will trust God
whatever I am, I can never be thrown away.
If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve God.
In perplexity, my perplexity may serve God
If I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve God.
God does nothing in vain.
God knows what God is about.
God may take away my friends.
God may throw me among strangers.
God may make me feel desolate
make my spirits sink
hide my future from me—still
God knows what God is about.

May you be inspired – everyday!
