Sober Thought of the Day
Scientists announced that they have located the gene for alcoholism. Scientists say they found it at a party, talking way too loudly. Conan O’Brien

When I think back at all the times I had a little too much to drink at work or important social functions, I cringe. What did I say? How did I say it? Was I a loud mouth? Did I slur? Not pretty. Number 9

Psalm of the Day
Responsorial Psalm PS 31:5-6, 14, 15-16

R. (17b) Save me, O Lord, in your kindness.

You will free me from the snare they set for me,
for you are my refuge.
Into your hands I commend my spirit;
you will redeem me, O LORD, O faithful God.
R. Save me, O Lord, in your kindness.

I hear the whispers of the crowd, that frighten me from every side,
as they consult together against me, plotting to take my life.
R. Save me, O Lord, in your kindness.

But my trust is in you, O LORD;
I say, “You are my God.”
In your hands is my destiny; rescue me
from the clutches of my enemies and my persecutors.
R. Save me, O Lord, in your kindness.

Today’s Saint
“To give, and not to count the cost to fight, and not to heed the wounds, to toil, and not to seek for rest, to labor, and not to ask for any reward, save that of knowing that we do thy will” ― St. Ignatius of Loyola
