Guidance for World Living

        Today is the Memorial of St. Benedict. In the Gospel reading from Matthew 10, Jesus said to the Apostles: "Behold, I am sending you like sheep in the midst of wolves; so be shrewd like serpents and simple as doves." This strikes me as the way we should conduct ourselves in dealing with the world: to be shrewd to keep others from taking advantage of us and simple to preserve our purity.
