Spending Your Day With Jesus!

I recently got emailed a beautiful list of verses by a servant in St Barbara. The Email was a really intelligent way to live with Christ throughout the whole day.

I hope you enjoy it as much as i did!

Thanks to that servant for the translation from the translations of Fr Bishoy Kamal.
