REFLECTION…

.

The love of God makes us joyful, strong and persevering.

.

As Christians, we should accept our trials with joy and hope,

because we know that what is promised in exchange

is something much better

.

Clear signs that the love of God is influencing everything we do

is that feeling of inner joy even in the midst of difficulties,

perseverance notwithstanding our suffering,

as well as faithfulness in prayer.

.

QUOTE…

.

"Where one loves,

either one does not feel the difficulty

or else one loves the very difficulty […]."

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

Holy Spirit, fill me with love, joy, peace, patience,

kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

gentleness and self-control.
