“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 51:1-4;10-12

TODAY’S WORD…

.1

Have mercy on me, O God,
according to Your unfailing love;
according to Your great compassion
blot out my transgressions.
Wash away all my iniquity
and cleanse me from my sin.

For I know my transgressions,
and my sin is always before me.
Against You, You only, have I sinned
and done what is evil in Your sight;
so You are right in Your verdict
and justified when You judge.

.

Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me from Your presence
or take Your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of Your salvation
and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

.

– Psalm 51:1-4;10-12 (NIV)

QUOTE…

.

“We also [like Jesus] must learn to listen more to our conscience.

Be careful, however:

this does not mean we ought to follow our ego,

do whatever interests us,

whatever suits us, whatever pleases us.

That is not conscience.

.

Conscience is the interior space

in which we can listen to and hear the truth,

the good,

the voice of God.

It is the inner place of our relationship

with Him, who speaks to our heart and helps us to discern,

to understand the path we ought to take,

and once the decision is made, to move forward, to remain faithful.”

.

– Pope Francis

PRAYER…

.

Father,

here I am – a sinner –

seeking to listen to You,

seeking to do Your will

and to obey Your commands.

.

Forgive me Father,

for so often letting You down.

Forgive my weaknesses

and my self-centeredness.

.

Heal me O God,

restore me

and help me correctly discern the freedom You gave me

and faithfully persevere

in walking the right path

that You have laid out before me.

.

Amen.

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

Lord, heal me; restore me; lead me.

YEAR OF FAITH 2012-2013

FROM THE CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH…

.

In the formation of conscience the Word of God is the light for our path,

we must assimilate it in faith and prayer and put it into practice.

.

We must also examine our conscience before the Lord’s Cross.

.

We are assisted by the gifts of the Holy Spirit,

aided by the witness or advice of others

and guided by the authoritative teaching of the Church.

.

[CCC 1785]
