TODAY’S WORD…

.

Love the Lord, all His faithful people.
The Lord protects the faithful,
but punishes the proud as they deserve.

Be strong, be courageous,
all you that hope in the Lord.

REFLECTION…

.

God calls on those whose faith has wavered in one way or another,

to love Him come what may

and to hope in Him till the end.

PRAYER…

.

Father,

make me humble.

Remove my pride, O God,

and make me more like Jesus.

.

I love You, my Lord,

and, although I do not deserve Your infinite goodness,

I receive it gladly and with a grateful heart.

.

Increase my Faith,

fill me with hope

and strengthen me

so that I can face life with courage

and with determination to remain always true to You.

.

For this I pray in Jesus’ Holy Name. Amen.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

My Lord and my God, strengthen my faith and trust…in You.

YEAR OF FAITH 2012-2013

FROM THE CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH…

.

It remains for the holy people

to struggle, with grace from on high, to obtain the good things God promises.

.

In order to possess and contemplate God,

Christ’s faithful mortify their cravings

and, with the grace of God, prevail over the seductions of pleasure and power.

[CCC 2549]
