Readings for Today

There is a tremendous responsibility given to any leader. Leadership is not simply the case of giving orders. It is far more important than that. It is about providing the example that inspire others to follow. And, when a leader fails, it is about having the courage to admit wrongdoing, and doing something so that words do not ring hollow, but represent a desire to make up for sin. Fridays are traditionally days when penance is done, so today is a good day to do what it takes to repent.
