January 24 - St. Francis de Sales, bishop and doctor
If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand; that is the end of him. But no one can enter a strong man's house to plunder his property unless he first ties up the strong man. Then he can plunder his house (Mark 3: 24-27).
A strong, unified team is tough to beat. It takes courage to be united as one, to find solutions to difficulties and not run away or pretend they are there. Be strong!
Lord, I want to be united to you. Never leave my side.
