Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! 
¡Feliz Día de Acción de Gracias a todos!
Gratitude is the heart's memory. French Proverb
El agradecimiento es la memoria del corazón. Proverbio francés

In a sign that the Korean immigrant community is becoming more involved with the wider community, a Korean American young professionals group volunteered at the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store Saturday.

"As only a great necessity would make us decide to give remedies to a sick person in a violent attack of fever, so we should not generally reprove anyone at the very time they commit a fault." - St. Vincent de Paul
“Al igual que solo una gran necesidad nos haría darle algún remedio a una persona enferma en un ataque violento de fiebre, de la misma manera no debemos generalmente reprochar a nadie en el preciso momento en el que cometen algún error.
-San Vicente de Paul

Father, when I have been hurt, my first reaction is to retaliate. Teach me to forgive, even as you have forgiven me.
Padre, cuando he sido lastimado, mi primer reacción es contraatacar. Enséñame a perdonar, aun como tú me has perdonado a mí. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Vincentian Services Department

"When the Spirit of God dwells in souls, He delivers them from that weakness which makes them ask, 'What will people say?'" - St. Louise de Marillac

“Cuando el Espíritu de Dios habita en las almas, El las libra de esa debilidad que les hace preguntar, ‘Que dirá la gente?’” -Santa Luisa de Marillac

Deliver me, Lord, from being overly concerned about the opinions of others when the only important thing is to do what is right in your eyes.
Líbrame, Señor, de estar demasiado preocupada/o acerca de las opiniones de otros Cuando lo más importante que nos debe concernir es el estar bien ante tus ojos.
