Tree of Life Day 78: Acts 3-5

I can't help but think of this story...

St. Thomas Aquinas was walking one day with the Pope (admittedly, different versions of this story have different people involved with Aquinas).  The Pope was commenting on the beauty of one of the cathedrals and said, "It seems, dear Thomas, that no longer can the Church say, 'Silver and gold have we none.'"

Thomas' reply was succinct and poignant:  "But neither can we say, 'In the name of Jesus Christ, rise and walk.'"

Father, grant us power by your Spirit - the power to do ministry and the power to handle our prosperity well.  Amen.
