Hidden Talents

Ave Maria writes:

"An educator who has been a consecrated religious for 50 years, once told me God gives a special talent to each child. You must pray to discover the hidden talent of each child."
Makes me think of what our last Pope said to families: "Become who you are."

Tip of the hat to Cindy

Also, a quote from GKC thanks to Love2Learn Mom
"I myself have little Latin and less Greek. But I know enough Greek to know the meaning of the second syllable of "enthusiasm," and I know it to be the key to this and every other discussion."
Absolutely.

Dear WJFR,
I am honored that you placed a link to my article “Math, The Popes and Holy Simeon” at your “Every Waking Hour” blog. However, I believe you inadvertently attached another author's name to my quote.

I invite you and your readers to try Mary Vitamin, a daily Marian meditation by email. If you benefited from “Math, the Popes and Holy Simeon”, you may also derive spiritual enrichment from a short daily reading about the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Dear Ave Maria,
I'm going to edit my post to make the attribution more clear. Thanks for pointing out the ambiguity. Yes, I receive your Mary Vitamins by mail and I do recommend them; they are wonderful. Thanks for the work you do : ). I also enjoy your blog.

Dear WJFR,
Thank you.
I've enjoyed reading your posts. I especially liked your comments on The Song at the Scaffold. I found it an enigmatic book, so further explanations are very helpful.
Ave Maria!
