THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: Do not make yourself an unworthy recipient of the love of God. Touch the world with kindness and compassion and not hatred and scorn. Never turn your back on an opportunity to offer the hand of God to those in need. Let not your moral compass be framed by money or power or control. Instead, let your sense of self be defined by selflessness and openness of heart and soul..... Margaret Theresa Naughton.
