Sober Thought of the Day
Night life is when you get up with a hangover in the morning. Night life is when everybody says what the hell and you do not remember who paid the bill. Night life goes round and round and you look at the wall to make it stop. Night life comes out of a bottle and goes into a jar. If you think how much are the drinks it is not night life.” ― Ernest Hemingway, 88 Poems

When I was in high school I went on a trip to Europe with my Spanish class. I went to the bar in which Hemingway used to sit and write and I remember thinking how cool was that–it sounded wonderful to me, to drink and write, drink and write.  Number 9

Psalm of the Day
Responsorial Psalm PS 89:21-22, 25 AND 27

R. (2) For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.

“I have found David, my servant;
with my holy oil I have anointed him.
That my hand may always be with him;
and that my arm may make him strong.”
R. For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.

“My faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him;
and through my name shall his horn be exalted.
He shall say of me, ‘You are my father,
my God, the Rock, my savior!’“
R. For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.

Today’s Saint
“The soul is like an uninhabited world that comes to life only when God lays His head against us.”  ― St. Thomas Aquinas
