“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Mark 3:35

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“Whoever does the will of God

is my brother and sister and mother.”

.

– Mark 3:35 (NRSV)

.

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

Wow!

Our Lord Jesus is telling us

that if we follow Him

we will share His life as intimately

as if we were a member of His family.

.

Whoever does God’s will

receives the Key to the Kingdom.

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

“Everyone who does the will of the Father,

that is to say, who obeys Him,

is a brother or sister of Christ,

because he is like Him who fulfilled the will of His Father.

.

But he who not only obeys but converts others, begets Christ in them,

and thus becomes like the Mother of Christ"

.

– St. Thomas

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Lord Jesus, my God,

Your love for me knows no limits!

.

Lord, I thank You for Your willingness

to make me a close member of Your family;

for Your readiness to entrust me

with the key to the door to Your home.

.

I pray that I will never misuse

the freedom that You so generously gave me,

and decide against being a family member

of Your glorious household.

.

Lord, how can I ignore Your promise

and throw away the key

which opens wide the door to Your realm?

.

Lord, stop me from ever consciously and wilfully

refusing to do Your holy will.

.

Oh, Divine Hand that never lets go of me,

let me never let go of You

and help me to always do Your will!

.

Amen.

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Oh, Divine Hand that never lets go of me,

help me to always do Your will!
