27 July 2013 – “a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 2 Corinthians 6:2

.

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

God says,

“At just the right time, I heard you.
On the day of salvation, I helped you.”

.

Indeed, the “right time” is now.

Today is the day of salvation.

.

– 2 Corinthians 6:2 (NLT)

.

.

QUOTE…

.

“We receive the grace of God in vain

when we receive it at the gate of our heart, without allowing it to enter:

we receive it without receiving it;

we receive it without fruit,

since there is no use in feeling the inspiration if one does not consent unto it.

.

And just as the sick man who has the medicine in his hands,

if he takes only part of it, will only partially benefit from it,

so too, when God sends a great and mighty inspiration to move us to embrace His love,

if we do not avail of it in its entirety,

we shall benefit from it only partially”

.

– St. Francis de Sales

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

O most loving God,

generous beyond compare,

why am I so unappreciative of Your gifts?

.

Why do I, so often, put Your bountiful grace aside,

choosing instead the world’s false promises?

.

Today, my God, I have decided

– I have decided to say “Yes” to You.

Help me embrace Your truth

– in faith and with determination.

.

My God, I want to be healed

…I want to be saved!

Stay with me, Lord!

.

Amen.

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Yes, Lord. Save me, Lord!

.

.

.

YEAR OF FAITH 2012-2013

FROM THE CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH…

.

Our salvation flows from God’s initiative of love for us,

because “He loved us and sent His Son to be the expiation for our sins” (1 Jn 4:10).

“God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself” (2 Cor 5:19).

.
