Serve the Lord with gladness
Choosing and retaining a motto, however, can be extraordinarily useful for a person’s life, most especially when the motto comes from Scripture AND is truly a guiding principle for that person’s life.
Whenever I have thought of a motto, I have always thought of this phrase from today’s Responsorial (Psalm 100):
Servite Domino in laetitia
Serve the Lord with gladness.
I am not always perfect in living this motto (orate pro me), but the more I remember it and the better I live it, the happier I am.
What should your motto be?
