And Everything He Does He Prospers
In this book there are three virtues or graces which we consider to be the key to a successful life:
An Open Mind … A Big Heart … A Humble Spirit.
We need these three qualities together to tackle life’s challenging situations and make a success of them. In his third epistle, Saint John said: “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” (3 John 1:2). Success in life is to succeed in every way and not just spiritually or socially or academically. In his prayer Saint Ephraim the Syrian said: “Guide the vessel of my life with your commandments, and grant me the understanding to trade my talents successfully as long as I still have time, before I hear those words; show me the results of trading your talents.” A successful life is what we all hope for, on our journey to the Kingdom of Heaven. May the words in this book be a blessing to many, for the Glory of God’s name through the intercessions of our Mother the Virgin Mary and Saint Mark the Evangelist.
