TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“I tell you, most solemnly,

unless a wheat grain falls on the ground and dies,

it remains only a single grain;

but if it dies,

it yields a rich harvest.”

.

– John 12:24 (JB)

REFLECTION…

.

Jesus teaches us

and encourages us.

He desires us to see every type of suffering and contradiction

as a sharing in His cross,

which redeems us and exalts us.

.

To be supernaturally effective in sowing love, peace and joy

under any circumstance – good or bad –

I have to die to myself,

forgetting my comfort

and shedding my selfishness..

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

"If the grain of wheat does not die,

it remains unfruitful.

Don’t you want to be a grain of wheat,

to die through mortification,

and to yield a rich harvest?

May Jesus bless your wheatfield!"

.

– St. Josemaria Escrivá

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Lord Jesus, help me forget my comfort and shed my selfishness.

Lord, help me be more like You.
