People are saying that I’m an alcoholic, but that’s not true, because I only drink when I work. I’m a workaholic. -Ron White

Today’s Saint
‘There is an anger which is engendered of evil, and there is an anger engendered of good. Hastiness of temper is the cause of the evil, divine principle is the cause of the good, such as that which Phinees felt when he allayed God’s anger by the use of his own sword.’
–Pope St. Gregory the Great

For you shall eat the fruit of your handiwork;
blessed shall you be, and favored.

around your table.
