It often happens that I wake up at night and begin to think about a serious problem and decide I must tell the Pope about it. Then I wake up completely and remember that I am the Pope. — Pope John XXIII


FAST from putting off a serious problem you are aware of and make a plan to do something about it.

PRAY for the approaching canonization of Blessed John XXIII, that it might inspire people to live their own lives in a saintly fashion.

GIVE — aid to someone facing a serious problem (unemployment, relationship issues, etc.). Take them out to lunch or offer another gesture that might help their situation.
