“Trust in God; trust in God.”—Bl. Solanus Casey
If Solanus Casey demonstrated anything, it’s that holiness can be found in the simplest of actions, such as just listening or talking to people. How would you describe holiness?
Bl. Solanus is a great example that there are many avenues and ways one can be a witness to people. He was not allowed to preach or hear confessions, but in his work as a porter and sacristan, he still ministered to many. In your life, what are some avenues that offer you a chance to serve others?
Has there any been a time that someone underestimated your abilities to do something? What was your reaction?

Lord Jesus Christ, you have the words of everlasting life. Help us to cast aside all doubt and fear so that we may freely embrace your word with complete trust and joy. We surrender all to you. Be the Lord of our lives and the Ruler of our hearts. May there be nothing which hinders us from trusting in your love and following your will. Amen.
If it can’t be found in the simplest of actions, it can’t be found anywhere.
