St Hilda - 17th November
Words ascribed to St Hilda of Whitby
Trade with the gifts God has given you.
Bend your minds to holy learning,
that you may escape the fretting moth of
littleness of mind that would wear out your souls
Brace your wills to action
that they may not be the spoils of weak desires
Train your hearts and lips to song
which gives courage to the soul.
Being buffeted by trials, learn to laugh.
Being reproved, give thanks.
Having failed, determine to succeed.
