"Oh, how precious time is!"

Today the Church honors St. Padre Pio.  It is also the first day of Autumn and the nights have turned cold here in Connecticut USA.  The last of our grapes are coming in from our garden and the flowers are starting to wane.  The first bright colors of fall are seen in the big maple trees and the children are saying goodbye to summer for another year. Indeed time is truly speeding along.  My husband and I were marvelling at this very fact the other day.  Indeed many had told us this many time but we now see for ourselves our children are growing up so fast.  The more I appreciate the passing of time the more urgency there is to find that extra little gift to send up to heaven.  

The Children's Rosary is now in the middle of our week of prayer and fasting.  It is our prayer and hope that during these last remaining 5 days many more people will join along with us. To read more about our week of prayer and fasting click HERE.

 St. Padre Pio said it well:

"Oh, how precious time is!  Blessed are those who know how to make good use of it.  Oh, if only all could understand how precious time is, undoubtedly everyone would do his best to spend it in a praiseworthy manner!"
