TODAY’S WORD…AND TEACHING…

.

Since you are God’s dear children, you must try to be like Him.

Your life must be controlled by love,

just as Christ loved us and gave His life for us

as a sweet-smelling offering and sacrifice that pleases God.

.

Since you are God’s people,

it is not right that any matters of sexual immorality or indecency or greed

should even be mentioned among you.

Nor is it fitting for you to use language which is obscene, profane, or vulgar.

Rather you should give thanks to God.

.

You may be sure that no one who is immoral, indecent, or greedy (for greed is a form of idolatry)

will ever receive a share in the Kingdom of Christ and of God.

.

Do not let anyone deceive you with foolish words;

it is because of these very things

that God’s anger will come upon those who do not obey Him.

So have nothing at all to do with such people.

.

Try to learn what pleases the Lord.

.

– Ephesians 5:1-7,10 (GNT)

QUOTES…

.

"Reflect on the example that Christ gave us,

from the crib in Bethlehem to His throne on Calvary.

Think of His self-denial and of all He went through

– hunger, thirst, weariness;

heat, tiredness, ill-treatment, misunderstandings, tears […].

But at the same time think of His joy at being able to save all mankind.“

.

– St. Josemaria Escriva

.

.

"Take special care of chastity

and also of the other virtues which go with it – modesty and refinement.

They are as it were the safeguard of chastity.

.

Don’t take lightly those norms of conduct

which help so much to keep us worthy in the sight of God:

a watchful guard over our senses and our heart;

the courage – the courage to be a ‘coward’ – to flee from occasions of sin;

going to the sacraments frequently, particularly to the sacrament of Confession;

complete sincerity in personal spiritual direction;

sorrow, contrition and reparation after one’s falls.

And all this imbued with a tender devotion to our Lady

to have her obtain for us from God the gift of a clean and holy life"

.

– St. Josemaria Escriva

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Make me holy, Lord, I want to be like You.

Mother of God, pray for me that I may live a clean and holy life.
