'Endowed With Christ'
St. Leo the Great
I have the strength for everything through him who empowers me.
- Philippians 4:13
As we grow in our understanding of empowerment, we begin to realize that we possess an inner strength that comes from God. We have been endowed with Christ. This inner strength enables us to move through our days with the mind and heart of Christ. To be empowered means we have been given the supply of grace that we need to do the work of God.

It is easy to forget that we have been empowered through the grace of baptism, empowered through the coming of the Spirit, empowered every time we receive the Eucharist and each time we celebrate the sacrament of reconciliation. For most of us, it is difficult to really be in these sacramental moments--alive and awake to what is happening in this instant or what has happened in the past.
Help me, O God, to walk through my days utterly present to your power within me.
- Sr. Macrina Wiederkehr, O.S.B.
