The Mane Land: for Orlando City SC fans
Can someone with a lion on their shirt badge please locate the goal? Orlando City followed up its 2022 U.S. Open Cup championship with a one-and-done entry in the competition in 2023 with Tuesday night's 1-0 loss at Charlotte FC. Overall, the Lions did almost everything they had to do in order to advance with a road win — with the major exception of putting the ball in the old onion bag. Eleven shot attempts isn't a ton, but it's enough, as long as you don't miss the net 11 times. Charlotte only got six looks and put four of them on target, scoring once. That turned out to be enough to knock Orlando City out of the tournament. We break down what went well and what didn't, and make our selections for Man of the Match. Do these Lions lack swagger? We discussed whether the team needs a little more charisma and passion in its leadership as it had when the likes of Nani and Junior Urso were the veterans that everyone looked up to. Our mailbagbox asked us which Orlando City prospects we were excited to see join the senior side in the coming years. Remember, if there's anything — and we do mean anything — you want us to address on the show, just ask us by tweeting it to us at @TheManeLand with the hashtag #AskTMLPC. Finally, we previewed Orlando City at the Columbus Crew this Saturday, making our score predictions and discussing the key matchups in the match. Here's how No. 343 went down: 0:15 – A look back at an unsatisfying result in Charlotte. 32:23 – The mailbagbox beckons. 40:26 – A look ahead at the Crew and what we think will happen on Saturday.

But thankfully, after listening to this episode, you'll now have something new to think about: a 71-year-old virgin who's obsessed with god. This very kind man is our only guest this week, and we talk to him for the entire episode while comedian, friend, and polar opposite of virgin Steph Tolev helps us interview him.

Creativity, Collaboration, and Staying Collected.In this episode of The Outspoken Podcast, host Shana Cosgrove talks to Kristen Parks, Owner and Chief Creative Officer at Eleven Peppers Studios. Kristen shares the challenges and excitement of being a creative professional in the world of government contracting, emphasizing the importance of creative engagement as a "have-to-have." She recounts the journey of founding a creative services company that delivers a wide range of solutions, from UX to branding and marketing. Kristen sheds light on the collaborative structure at Eleven Peppers, highlighting the value of stepping back and allowing others to create exceptional work. She underscores the significance of scheduling—even for breakfast—in maintaining a work-life balance, and she smiles at the younger self who thought a two-hour commute on the DC Metro Orange Line was a good idea.

I would say I have a lot of confidence in colleagues that I trust . . . . I have different pieces that make up the puzzle of a mentor.” - Kristen Parks [30:25] “I would just say don't be afraid to let us in. Don't look at it as an added expense, an extra, a ‘nice to have,' if we have it in the budget. . . . Look at it as a ‘have to have.'

Rockstars. Teams love ‘em…Businesses love ‘em…Communities love ‘em. So what's it take to consistently be the rockstar you know you are? Better yet, what's it take to lead like one?

Jim is an award-winning training and development expert, culture catalyst, 3x best-selling author, podcaster, and a Top 10 Keynote Speaker in the U.S. I'd say he knows a thing or two about building rock star teams and organizations.

Jesus said to his disciples: “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You have faith in God; have faith also in me. In my Father's house there are many dwelling places. If there were not, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?” John 14:1–2These consoling and encouraging words, spoken by Jesus to the Apostles at the Last Supper, come immediately after Judas left to betray Jesus and after Jesus told Peter, in the presence of the others, that Peter would deny Jesus three times before the cock crowed. As a result, the Twelve (now Eleven) would have been discouraged, especially Peter. Jesus senses this and says, “Do not let your hearts be troubled…”Peter was told that he would soon commit a grave sin against Jesus. As we are later told, as soon as Peter committed these sins, he went out and wept bitterly. Perhaps, as he did, he would have recalled Jesus' words: “Do not let your hearts be troubled…”Being tempted toward sin can be discouraging. But that can turn into a good thing. If we are not affected by our temptations, then we lack love for God. And if we give into those temptations and fail to experience sorrow, this is even worse. However, discouragement over our sins cannot remain; it must turn into its opposite, the virtue of hope. Hope will result from sin only when we hear and understand Jesus' promise, seen above.Jesus not only tells the disciples not to be troubled, He also tells them why. Jesus promises them He will prepare a place for them in Heaven and will come to take them to that place in His Father's House, despite their failings. By believing, Peter and the other apostles will be able to dispel the initial discouragement they feel over their failings and turn back to God with the anticipation of Heaven.Do you get discouraged by your sin? Begin by calling to mind any sin that you regularly struggle with. Habitual sin, especially, will lead to either sorrow, repentance and hope, or to a discouragement that ends in despair and the abandonment of virtue. Like Saint Peter, we must strive to weep bitterly over our sins. We must let our sins, and the temptation toward despair, become a motivation to regain hope, courage, and determination. This will only be possible if we always hear Jesus say to us, “Do not let your hearts be troubled…” We must sense His compassion and tenderness and allow that love to fill us with confidence that we will one day overcome all sin and be welcomed into the Father's House.Reflect, today, upon any sin with which you regularly struggle. As you do, consider whether your discouragement leads to despair or hope. Hope does not come from your ability to overcome sin on your own. It comes from the compassion of our Lord and His promise to redeem you. If you do have a troubled heart, that is good. It is the starting point for hope. Allow Jesus to lift your troubled heart and to point your eyes to Heaven. Most compassionate Lord, though I am a sinner, You speak to me with tenderness and call me to repent so that I will always have hope in Heaven. Please give me a true and holy sorrow for my sins and help me to always turn back to You so that You will one day lead me to the fullness of the Father's House. Jesus, I trust in You.Source of content: catholic-daily-reflections.comCopyright © 2023 My Catholic Life! Inc. All rights reserved. Used with permission via RSS feed.
Confessions of a Closet Romantic
What more could be said about witty, gorgeous George Clooney? For a long time now, George has been a worthy modern day Cary Grant, with all of the bantering sexy suave of that classic film icon. But I've noticed in more recent roles that George is moving into his rumpled cargo shorts phase (with just the slightest potbelly, still ridiculously attractive) as he adds more and more father figure roles to his hot little filmography.https://www.confessionsofaclosetromantic.comMoviesThis vintage trailer makes Room for One More sound like a sexually charged romp with the parents of a family of young kids, which it really isn't (thankfully). Though a desperate Cary Grant craving alone time with his wife for some private adult fun is quite the subtle and sexy subplot.There's some icky sexist late 1950s patriarchal stuff in Houseboat but it doesn't take away from the chemistry between luminous Sophia Loren and gorgeous Cary Grant, who fall for each other as they team up to care for his motherless children.Penny Serenade is a romantic melodrama that punches all of the right buttons, a story about a couple (Irene Dunne and Cary Grant) who can't get pregnant and decide to adopt a baby, with all of the struggle and heartbreak — and joy — that follows. The child who plays their daughter is insanely adorable.Out of Sight is one of those amusing action-packed sexy capers that succeeds because of the fantastic ensemble acting and lively direction. As the two unlikely romantic leads, Jennifer Lopez and George Clooney —and director Steven Soderbergh —knock it out of the park. This movie is still memorable more than 25 years later.Much like the Rat Pack original, the Ocean's Eleven remake is packed to the rafters with stylish, sexy, attractive actors projecting that super-fun-when-it's-fictional alpha male energy. George Clooney, as the insanely handsome, smooth, cocky and confident con man ringleader, is at his peak here.The sad yet funny tone and deep themes of The Descendants coupled with the low-key, authentic performances and Hawaiian music underscoring the emotion, turn this movie into a quiet masterpiece. A young Shailene Woodley won awards and industry recognition for her portrayal of George Clooney's daughter Alex.Ticket to Paradise is completely predictable but also surprising in some ways, with amazing chemistry between the romantic leads and the excellent ensemble cast, which is how all good romcoms should be.Support the showIf you enjoyed this episode, please click share in your podcast app and tell your friends!

In 2018, a Supreme Court ruling in the case of South Dakota v. Wayfair opened the door for states to implement a sales tax on remote sellers based on the sales amount even if the seller is not physically present in the state. Many companies with multistate sales are only now learning about their tax obligations under new state laws that have been enacted since the Supreme Court ruling. To avoid penalties and additional tax liability, companies with multistate sales must understand their exposure to economic nexus through remote sales and take steps to comply with their reporting and tax obligations.Generally, there are three main categories for sales taxation: the basic, physical nexus, the affiliate nexus, and the click-through nexus. How can businesses be prepared and proactive on their sales taxation and remain aware of ways to save money in this new environment?On today's episode of On the Shop Floor, a Weaver podcast, hosts Colby Horn, Partner, Assurance Services and Jody Allred, Partner-in-Charge are joined by Blake Fuqua, Partner, State and Local Tax Services, to talk about sales tax law changes since 2018 and how these changes will impact businesses. Horn, Allred, and Fuqua covered these topics:1. Key issues in sales tax requirements and changes since 20182. Digital sales tax rules for e-commerce 3. Savings opportunities for manufacturing businesses Fuqua stated, “Organizations need to be proactive rather than reactive and waiting until they get audited. A lot of the time, that's when I get called in and it's an uphill battle at that point if we don't have the certificates or you haven't been filing, it puts companies in a tough spot.”Blake Fuqua has nearly 15 years of indirect tax experience and sales tax consulting in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, energy, retail, and construction. Prior to joining Weaver, Fuqua served as Manager of Multistate Tax Services, Sales and Use Tax at Deloitte, Sales Tax Analyst at 7-Eleven, and Sales and Use Tax Consultant at Ryan.

Reading 1 Acts 2:14a, 36-41 Then Peter stood up with the Eleven,raised his voice, and proclaimed:"Let the whole house of Israel know for certainthat God has made both Lord and Christ,this Jesus whom you crucified."Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart,and they asked Peter and the other apostles,"What are we to do, my brothers?"Peter said to them,"Repent and be baptized, every one of you,in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins;and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.For the promise is made to you and to your childrenand to all those far off,whomever the Lord our God will call."He testified with many other arguments, and was exhorting them,"Save yourselves from this corrupt generation."Those who accepted his message were baptized,and about three thousand persons were added that day.Reading 2 1 Pt 2:20b-25 Beloved:If you are patient when you suffer for doing what is good,this is a grace before God.For to this you have been called,because Christ also suffered for you,leaving you an example that you should follow in his footsteps.He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth.When he was insulted, he returned no insult;when he suffered, he did not threaten;instead, he handed himself over to the one who judges justly.He himself bore our sins in his body upon the cross,so that, free from sin, we might live for righteousness.By his wounds you have been healed.For you had gone astray like sheep,but you have now returned to the shepherd and guardian of your souls.Gospel Jn 10:1-10 Jesus said:"Amen, amen, I say to you,whoever does not enter a sheepfold through the gatebut climbs over elsewhere is a thief and a robber.But whoever enters through the gate is the shepherd of the sheep.The gatekeeper opens it for him, and the sheep hear his voice,as the shepherd calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.When he has driven out all his own,he walks ahead of them, and the sheep follow him,because they recognize his voice.But they will not follow a stranger;they will run away from him,because they do not recognize the voice of strangers."Although Jesus used this figure of speech,the Pharisees did not realize what he was trying to tell them.So Jesus said again, "Amen, amen, I say to you,I am the gate for the sheep.All who came before me are thieves and robbers,but the sheep did not listen to them.I am the gate.Whoever enters through me will be saved,and will come in and go out and find pasture.A thief comes only to steal and slaughter and destroy;I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly."

It's 4PM eastern time on November 25th, 1948. Elgin Watches annual Thanksgiving Day special is on the air from NBC's KFI in Hollywood. Don Ameche is the emcee. Ken Carpenter is announcing. This November Radio ratings are robust. Eleven shows have ratings higher than twenty points, and Lux Radio Theatre's 33.2 is the most listened-to show on the air. But a major shift is about to happen just as the TV era launches. In 1948 comedian Jack Benny organized his activities into a corporation. At that time American individuals were taxed seventy-seven percent on all income over seventy thousand dollars. Benny's hope was to secure a deal with NBC for his company, so that he could be taxed under capital gains laws at 25%. NBC's parent company was the Radio Corporation of America. Their head, David Saroff, refused. Amos N' Andy were the first to secure such a deal. They jumped to CBS in October of 1948. Then Lew Wasserman and Taft Shreiber—President and VP of The Music Corporation of America, called head of CBS William Paley to see if he was interested in a similar deal for Jack Benny. In November, David Sarnoff got word and sent NBC president Niles Trammel to California with orders to keep Benny at NBC, but Sarnoff refused to be there. William Paley flew to LA to meet in person, agreeing for CBS to buy Benny's corporation for $2.26 Million. NBC responded by doubling their offer. However, Lew Wasserman again intervened, obtained the NBC contract, changed every mention of NBC to CBS, and re-offered the deal to Benny, who then signed it. Although Benny was signed, Paley next had to convince Benny's sponsor American Tobacco to make the move. He did so by guaranteeing that CBS would pay the cigarette giant three thousand dollars per week for every ratings point lost after the migration. Floored that Paley would offer this, all parties agreed immediately. On Thanksgiving in 1948, William Paley had plenty to be thankful for. While Jack Benny was appearing on NBC for this Elgin Special, CBS announced on their evening news that The Jack Benny Program would be jumping to CBS. When asked that evening by the United Press, Benny declined to comment. It touched off a firestorm between the two networks. NBC claimed any such deal was unlawful. David Sarnoff said “leadership built on a foundation of solid service can't be snatched overnight by a few high-priced comedians. Leadership is no laughing matter.” It was the biggest mistake of Sarnoff's career. Jack Benny left NBC at the end of the year. Edgar Bergen too. There was suddenly a glaring hole in NBC's Sunday night lineup. Between Benny and Bergen, NBC would need to replace roughly forty-five million listeners come January. In 1949, Burns and Allen, and Bing Crosby followed to CBS. NBC's desperation created major opportunities. Among those to benefit were a comedic duo who'd been selling out nightclubs all over the country. Their names were Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis.

For 20 years, Gregg Donovan, aka. the “Hollywood Ambassador,” has been greeting tourists in front of the famous theaters, museums and shops on Hollywood's Walk of Fame – one of L.A.'s most popular landmarks. Lately, however, he says business has slowed because people are fearful for their safety.“It's gone from bad to worse,” Donovan told KTLA. “I hear tourists say, ‘It's not the Walk of Fame, it's the Walk of Shame.' It's gotten that bad.”Over the past two weeks, Hollywood Boulevard and the surrounding area has seen three shootings.Early Sunday morning, two people were wounded when shots rang out in front of the 7-Eleven at Hollywood Boulevard and Wilcox Avenue. The previous night, gunfire erupted inside the Next Door Lounge on Highland and Lexington avenues, sending one person to the hospital.Support the showSign Up For Exclusive Episodes At: https://reasonabletv.com/LIKE & SUBSCRIBE for new videos every day. https://www.youtube.com/c/NewsForReasonablePeople

It's a great Tuesday in the car business as we talk about the growing battle to build the biggest multi-billion dollar battery plant. We also summarize the challenges and activity of the charging network in America, as well as discuss a large grocery chain's decision to bump the baristas. It's a battle of the billions as General Motors and Samsung SDI announced plans to invest over $3 billion in a US-based joint venture EV battery manufacturing plant, while Hyundai announces a $5 billion EV battery joint venture in Georgia with SK On.GM and Samsung SDI's planned plant will have an annual production capacity of 30 GWh, starting in 2026.The Hyundai-SK On Georgia plant will begin battery cell production in the second half of 2025, with a 35 GWh capacity.This news comes as Hyundai just reported doubled net profits in Q1Since there is a looming, arguably arbitrary, governmental set goal to have 50% of vehicles be zero emissions by…2030, many experts suggest the need for over half a million public charging stations to be installed nationwide to service the need. A great AN summary article provides a summary of some of the various initiatives across industries that are working toward that end with different goals and opportunitiesMass coordination across industries is going to be requiredOne of the biggest challenges will be the gaps between major metros Data from OEM partners is critical to determine driving habits and charge locationsGM partnering with their dealers can contribute a sizable chunk of chargeRetailers like Starbucks, 7-Eleven, Walmart, Target, Sonic Drive-In and Taco Bell are getting a bump out of installing charge stations but the path to profitability for the charging companies is unclearOther charge solutions such as battery swaps or mobile charging services are spinning upIndustry leading grocery chain, Wegmans, is testing out the replacement of live baristas at its in-store “Buzz” coffee bars with state of the art self service coffee machines. The company cites a significant decrease in coffee-run traffic since the uptick of work from home.“Coffee-brewing technology has come a long way, and our new self-serve coffee machines use our same high-quality coffee beans and offer a similar menu of lattes, cappuccinos, and brewed coffee drinks. As always, we'll monitor the success of this new program, and continue to evaluate the future of our coffee shops as we move forward,” the company said.The comments section is full of dissenting opinions on what is more important, a fast cup of coffee to accommodate a shopping trip or a great interaction with a real human and a cup of coffeeGet the Daily Push Back email at https://www.asotu.com/ JOIN the conversation on LinkedIn at: https://www.linkedin.com/company/asotu/ Read our most recent email at: https://www.asotu.com/media/push-back-email ASOTU Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/automotivestateoftheunion

Pastoral Reflections Finding God In Ourselves by Msgr. Don Fischer
Gospel Mark 16:15-20 Jesus appeared to the Eleven and said to them: "Go into the whole world and proclaim the Gospel to every creature. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved; whoever does not believe will be condemned. These signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will drive out demons, they will speak new languages. They will pick up serpents with their hands, and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not harm them. They will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover." Then the Lord Jesus, after he spoke to them, was taken up into heaven and took his seat at the right hand of God. But they went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the word through accompanying signs.Reflection The words, the last words that Jesus spoke to his disciples are very interesting. It underscores the fact that there are things such as demons, things that hurt and harm, and He's telling the disciples He will not remove them, but He will give them power not to be impacted in a negative way by them. That frees them then to be instruments of great healing, to know that you are free of the negative things in your life. And to know that once you are freed from them, you will become a healer. Is the great mystery of the preaching of the disciples. The Closing prayer Father, help us to feel. The promise you made to the disciples is a promise you've made to us. There's evil and destruction in the world. It can poison us. But your grace, your life within us is stronger than evil. And we'll conquer it. Help us to hear that message in our hearts. Preach it to us day after day so that we never lose hope. And we ask this in Jesus name. Amen.

In 1947 a Norwegian became curious if it was possible for the natives of South America to have drifted on a raft 4,300 miles across the Pacific ocean to populate the islands of Polynesia.The question of who populated Polynesia wasn't really important to anyone but Thor Heyerdahl.He opened his bestselling book in 1950 with these words,“Once in a while you find yourself in an odd situation. You get into it by degrees and in the most natural way but, when you are right in the midst of it, you are suddenly astonished and ask yourself how in the world it all came about. If, for example, you put to sea on a wooden raft with a parrot and five companions, it is inevitable that sooner or later you will wake up one morning out at sea, perhaps a little better rested than ordinarily, and begin to think about it. On one such morning I sat writing in a dew-drenched logbook…”DNA evidence later proved Heyerdahl's theory to be incorrect. Today we know for certain that Polynesia was not populated by South Americans, but by Asians.But I still like Thor Heyerdahl. He wanted to know if South Americans could have made that journey, so he built a raft using only the tools and materials available in prehistoric times, pushed away from the soft safety of the shore, and had himself a wonderful adventure.We don't do that sort of thing anymore, but I wish we did.We no longer set out to experience – with an open mind – the lives of persons who are different than us. We are no longer willing “to walk a mile in their shoes” so that we might better understand them. What we do instead is look for evidence that our own perspective is correct and that all the others are wrong. We are assisted in this unholy endeavor by algorithms on the internet and one-sided news organizations that tell us exactly what we want to hear.I like Thor Heyerdahl and I like John Howard Griffin.Like me, John Howard Griffin was born in Dallas, Texas, but he got there 38 years before I arrived.Two years before America entered World War II, 19-year-old John Howard Griffin joined the French Resistance as a medic and helped smuggle Austrian Jews to safety and freedom in England. When America officially entered that war, Griffin served the United States Army in the South Pacific where he was decorated for bravery.Keep that characteristic in mind: bravery.While serving in the Solomon islands, Griffin contracted spinal malaria that left him temporarily paraplegic. And then the concussion of a Japanese bomb caused him to become blind. Eleven years later, in 1957, his eyesight inexplicably returned and that's when the real adventure began.America was now at war with itself. The battle over civil rights was a whistling teapot on a fiery stove, so John Howard Griffin shaved his head in order to hide his straight hair, took large doses of Oxsoralen in 1959 to darken his skin, then spent six weeks traveling as a black man in the Deep South. He started in new New Orleans, then visited Mississippi, South Carolina, and Georgia, getting around mainly by hitchhiking.When I was young, I read John Howard Griffin's book about his experiences as a black man, and it felt to me like an honest and straightforward diary. A lot of other people felt differently, of course, so the Ku Klux Klan beat him nearly to death in 1975.And so it goes.*Evidently, it is safer to drift 4,300 miles across the Pacific in a prehistoric raft than it is to talk about race in America.Roy H. Williams*I wrote those 4 words – Kurt Vonnegut's signature line – because I heard him say it in my mind after I wrote the preceding sentence.Clay Stafford produces an annual conference that brings together authors, agents, exhibitors, and fans of crime and thriller literature.

Jesus appeared to the Eleven and said to them: “Go into the whole world and proclaim the Gospel to every creature. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved; whoever does not believe will be condemned.” Mark 16:15–16Saint Mark, whom we honor today, certainly fulfilled this mission that was given to the Apostles. Though Mark was not one of the Twelve and might not have even known Jesus while He walked the earth, he certainly fulfilled the mission of proclaiming the Gospel to the whole world by writing his Gospel account.Mark's Gospel is the shortest of the Gospels, but it is packed with detail. It recounts the life of Jesus vividly and in an almost breathless way. His Gospel presents the central messages of fulfillment found in Christ, the nearness of His Kingdom and the need to repent and believe.Though not much is known about Mark, our first reading from the Letter of Saint Peter written to the Christian communities in Asia Minor reveals that Mark was a follower of Peter who refers to Mark with affection as his “son.” It is also likely that Mark was a co-worker of Saint Paul (Philemon 1:24).As we honor this great evangelist, the most notable testament to His work of evangelizing is the Gospel attributed to him. Though he most certainly made a difference in the lives of those with whom he worked, preached to in person and witnessed to by his charity, it's amazing to ponder the ongoing effect that his Gospel has had upon the world. As you think about his life, try to imagine him sitting and writing out the Gospel account we now have. As he did so, he could never have imagined that the words he wrote would be read by countless millions until the end of the age. For him, he was fulfilling but one small service to the people of his time. He was motivated by a desire to make Jesus known to them, and the best way he knew how to do this was to write down Jesus' story.As Mark wrote his Gospel, we can be certain that he did so not only out of his own desire to share the life of Christ with others, but primarily because he was inspired by the Holy Spirit. Mark's gift of the writing of the Gospel was a response to grace. God gave him this mission, and he listened and obeyed. As a result, his short telling of the life of Christ has become part of the most widely read story in all of human history. And not only that, it is also among the most transformative stories ever written.Though God will not call you to write a Gospel account, He is calling you to a particular mission. What is that mission? Sometimes we can easily think that what we do is insignificant. But if what we do in life is done through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, then we can be certain that God will use our small effort in great ways. Like Saint Mark, we might never see how God uses us until we enter the glories of Heaven. But make no mistake, if you, like Saint Mark, listen to the will of God and act in obedience to Him, then the little you offer will have eternal and transformative consequences for the good of others.Reflect, today, upon this simple and humble servant of God. Consider Mark's limited knowledge about the extent that his contribution would end up making for the entire world. As you reflect upon him writing his Gospel account, ponder your own calling from God to do your small part. Know that you, too, can become an instrument of the gift of salvation for many. The key is to seek out the will of God for your life and commit yourself to the fulfillment of that will with passion and drive. Do not be deterred by any apparent lack of immediate results. Stay faithful to your mission and, from Heaven, you will eternally rejoice as you see the unexpected ways that God used you.Glorious Lord Jesus, You gave Your followers the great mission to preach Your Gospel to the ends of the world. I thank You for the ways that Saint Mark responded to Your inspiration and was used in such a powerful way. Please use me, dear Lord, as an instrument of Your grace so that I can share in the mission You have given to the Church. Jesus, I trust in You.
