|Fr. Mitchel speaking to the Girl Scout|
written by: Evelyn (8th grade Cadet)
Father Mitchel talked with the girls about what the world thinks makes people happy versus what God says will make us happy. The world thinks that you need to be pretty, have lots of money, be in control of your life, and be important. God cares more about how beautiful our soul is instead of our physical beauty. God tells us that we will be happy when we give to others in need. Instead of being in control of our lives, God wants us to hand over control to Him. And finally, instead of being important, God tells us that 'the greatest will become the least.' Father Mitchel told us about heroic female saints who found true happiness by doing what God wanted, including Mary, the Mother of Jesus, and St. Therese.
