I love people of possibility, people who dive in and make things happen. They have an energy and enthusiasm that is contagious, and people love being around them. They see possibilities everywhere they look. And everyone loves having people of possibility on their team at work and in their parish.
But there are also people of impossibility. To these people nothing seems possible. They are negative and filled with discouragement. Their attitude also be contagious. They can be sarcastic and cynical; they discourage others and belittle every idea that points towards new possibilities. People avoid people of impossibility.
As children of God and Christians, and particularly as Catholics, we are called to be people of possibility. We should be contagiously hopeful about God’s plans for our lives and the world.
This hope—the hope of a joyful Christian—is needed in society today more than ever. What are three ways you can bring hope to other people this month? I invite you to pray about this challenge, so God can empower you to become a powerful ambassador of hope and encouragement.
Everyone needs to be encouraged from time to time.

A wise one, you pass out sage advice that is most wonderful because of its simplicity. You also excel at the art of love. When you fall, you fall truly, madly, deeply. A great diplomat, you have a grace and ease that settles disputes and brings people together. It's as if you were on fire from within. The moon lives in the lining of your skin.
