TODAY’S WORD…

.

In God alone is my soul at rest;

my help comes from Him.

He alone is my rock, my stronghold,

my fortress: I stand firm.

.

In God alone be at rest, my soul;

for my hope comes from Him.

He alone is my rock, my stronghold,

my fortress: I stand firm.

.

Take refuge in God, all you people.

Trust Him at all times.

Pour out your hearts before Him

for God is our refuge.

.

– Psalm 62:1-2; 5-8 (The Grail Psalms)

A REFLECTION…from the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC27) …

.

The desire for God is written in the human heart,

because man is created by God and for God;

and God never ceases to draw man to Himself.

Only in God will he find the truth and happiness he never stops searching for:

.

The dignity of man rests, above all,

on the fact that he is called to communion with God.

This invitation to converse with God

is addressed to man as soon as he comes into being.

For if man exists, it is because God has created him through love,

and through love continues to hold him in existence.

He cannot live fully according to truth

unless he freely acknowledges that love

and entrusts himself to his Creator. (Vatican Council II).

QUOTE…

.

“Many are the high waves,

and dangerous are the storms,

but we do not fear shipwreck:

we are founded on rock.

.

Although the sea may rage,

the rock will not be destroyed.

Although the waves may rise,

the barque of Jesus will not be sunk. […]

.

Little, of what the world sees as fearful, troubles me.

I laugh at the goods this world offers to me.

I am not afraid of poverty,

nor do I desire riches.

.

I do not fear death,

nor do I desire to go on living

if that is not to my spiritual good.”

.

– St. John Chrysostom

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

In You alone I place my trust, O God

– my hope comes from You alone.
