Grumbling with Saint Mother Theodore
“Truly I have great need of prayers. I am quite a grumbler.”— Saint Mother Theodore Guerin
Me too, Saint Mother Theodore. Me too!
When I read this quote by Saint Mother Theodore Guerin, I am reminded once again why I love her so much. She is just so human. I can relate.
I too am quite a grumbler. When things don’t go as I planned. If something is inefficient or being done poorly. When I’m not feeling well. There are so many good reasons to grumble.
My penchant for complaining is something I’ve worked on improving. And perhaps I have gotten better: by trying to live in and appreciate the moment. By practicing thankfulness. By acknowledging the good.
But I will never walk in the way of perfection in this area, and so I turn to Saint Mother Theodore to pray for me. And to pray for all those who have to endure my grumbling.
Saint Mother Theodore, truly I have great need of your prayers. I am quite a grumbler.
I know I am in good hands. This saint understands.
