This was Mary inspiring us all to help others and in that way - we will find true happiness. A life of service to Mary was a meaningful and purposeful life.

One of the books that I try to read on a daily basis is Daily Stoic by Ryan Holiday. It draws on the wisdom of early philosophers like Marcus Aurelius, Seneca and Plato.
