26 July: On the road to freedom
“The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath”. (Mk 2,27)

The felicity of this estate (for as much as I can express) was a singular freedom from all that could make one adhere to earthly things, with an entire application and at disposition to all good worksMary Ward

- That we may be free, or allow ourselves to be free, from that which enslaves us.
- For all those who work for others.
