'The Power of Good Example'
St. Frances Xavier Cabrini
For the grace of God has appeared...training us to reject godless ways and worldly desires and to live temperately, justly, and devoutly in this age...
- Titus 2:11-12
St. Paul describes the type of behaviors Christians ought to exemplify. His words underscore the power of good example. Another person's good example can do more to inspire us than their preaching ("You should not do that!") or even their advice ("Here's what you should do.") would.

When I think of my deceased parents, I believe I am still being inspired by their example of kindness, personal integrity, hard work and simple living. When I reflect on my friends, I am edified by their example of compassion for others, their fidelity to prayer and their courage during difficult times. I have been inspired by the devotion of certain priests, by the ready smile of a nonagenarian and by the selfless care of parents for their children.

Whose good example has encouraged you in your living of the faith?
- Sr. Melannie Svoboda, S.N.D.
