“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Matthew 15:32

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus called his disciples and told them,

“I feel sorry for these people.”

.

– Matthew 15:32 (NLT)

.

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

To feel sorry for others;

to have compassion for those who suffer in one way or another;

to be genuinely moved by my neighbour’s misfortune

to the point of making myself available

and of giving of myself

as an expression of sincere Christian love and solidarity

– this is what I learn from Jesus

if I fix my eyes on Him

and as I meditate on His life.

.

Jesus is a summary and compendium

of the story of divine mercy.

“How great is the Lord’s merciful forgiveness of those who turn to Him!” (Sir 17:29)

How great is The Divine Mercy towards each one of us!

.

QUOTE…

.

“Nothing can make you such an imitator of Christ as your concern for others

… if you are not attentive to your neighbour, you have done very little;

you are very far from being an image of Christ.”

.

– St. John Chrysostom

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Come, O Divine Mercy, and teach me Your ways.
