Simple Goodness

"After all, there are few ways in which most of us can do better service for Christ in this world than just by being good. Cleverness shines more brightly in society, eloquence makes itself heard more widely, wealth makes a greater show and gets itself talked about by more people, alms-giving is more praised of men; but plain, simple goodness is apt to have as bright a crown and as high a place in heaven as either of her more showy sisters."

I chose this picture because I see more plain and simple goodness displayed by older siblings than just about anywhere else. Here, older sister prepares the food for her brother; a brother who will no doubt revere and love his sister above all.

Hi Fred,

Fantastic photo.The settings are gorgeous.

This post reminds me of the first Indian Saint Sr.Alphonsa.She was a very private person and she is not know for any great outdoor work.Yet she has been made a saint.

Best wishes,
Joseph

Makes sense, and sounds simple, and I must say it gives me a new view on things
