Dear Father, thank You for gazing upon me with love at every moment. I love being your treasured, beloved child. Please help me to see myself as You see me and to find my identity and sense of worth in Your love, rather than in the eyes of others. Amen.


St. André Bessette
André Bessette was known as the miracle worker at St. Joseph’s Oratory in Canada. Many people with illnesses or injuries came to this doorkeeper of his community for help. He prayed for them to St. Joseph, and many were healed. Whenever people began to talk about Brother Andre as a “miracle worker,” he always deflected their attention back to St. Joseph.


  • I let others be in the spotlight.
  • My dress and the way I carry myself reflect my value and dignity.
  • I speak in a way that is fitting.


2 Corinthians 10:17
Let him who boasts, boast of the Lord.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God? You are not your own; you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
