Setting the World on Fire…

21 May
The Bishop of London began the Royal Wedding sermon with this statement: “Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire; so said St. Catherine of Siena.”

I’ve been reflecting ever since: Am I being who I was meant to be?

 Many of us spend a lifetime trying to figure that out, while others spend just as much energy hiding from it.  What if we simply embraced life’s opportunities?  What difference could we make by using our gifts, whatever they are, to their fullest capacity?  How could we influence our corner of the world toward peace, love, and joy?  If you did, and I did, and he did, and she did…imagine the possibility of setting the world on fire!
