Make A Difference For The Good

If you think you can’t make a difference, remember Queen Margaret of Scotland (1045-1093), sometimes also known as Margaret of Wessex, or Saint Margaret of Scotland. A refugee from the Norman invasion of England, Margaret was a pious queen who sponsored Christian hermits and Benedictine monks, cared for the sick, and built hostels for the poor. Especially during Advent and Lent, she held large feasts for the common people in the castle. She even summoned a council to undertake reforms in the Scottish church, the decisions of which were known as the “Five Articles of Margaret.” Consider how you can use your influence and resources to work for positive change.
