“If the Lord does not build a house, then in vain do its builders labor”

“…of what use are the skills of the gardener and of the farmer, if God does not bless their work and give the increase? Let us take care not to rely on our talents; they are useless for doing good; we shall use them in vain and wear ourselves out to no purpose if God is not with us…”St. Marcellin Champagnat, Founder of the Marist Brothers
