Virtue of the Month
Conscience ~ November
God helps us to choose to be good people.
A person of conscience…
• chooses to do the right thing, even when it is hard
• takes time to think and pray before making decisions
• knows that their actions and decisions affect all those around them
• thinks of others before themselves
Our Daily Prayer for November
Let us now pray…for the grace and strength to be people of conscience – people who know the good and decent way to tact, and then choose to act that way. AMEN
