One Sunday a priest announced he was passing out miniature crosses made of wood.
"Put this cross in the room where your family argues most," he advised. "When you look at it, the cross will remind you that God is watching."

"Dead people receive more flowers than the living because regret is stronger than gratitude."
- Anne Frank
