St. Rose Philippine Duchesne – 

Do we ever consider that how we see God largely determines how we respond to God? If we see God as someone who, in the words of St. James, “gives to all generously and ungrudgingly,” then we are free to give our gifts, to take risks and to act in faith. We are bold to go forth into the world to dare and to risk and to live for God knowing that we are totally dependent upon God.
