YOU ARE THE SALT OF THE EARTH


You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.“ (Matt 5:13-16)

MY WILL AND YOURS BONDED TOGETHER



By the grace of Your Spirit, make my will strong, not afraid of obstacles, persevering, not giving up because of stumbles, aiming at horizons higher and wider than my immediate needs, capable of making sacrifices to build a more vibrant future.
Give me a will which is strong but not obstinate, willing to listen to voices of calm and experience, not presumptuous, but conscious of my limitations, not arrogant, choosing not to belittle those less fortunate than me, not selfish, willing to assist those in need of help.
Help me to understand that it is in doing small things that a great will is forged, in doing humble things that a noble will gets its wings, in doing routine duties well that I prepare myself for heroic deeds.
Be at my side, Lord, to lift me up, and push me forward, when the going gets rough, and I am bone­weary, when I don’t want to get up after so many falls, when I don’t feel like doing anything to get myself out of the dumps.
Help me say with You: “Not my will, Father, but Yours be done!” Amen.

THOUGHTS BY MADRE ANGELICA

On Conversion:
Even the devil believes that God exists. Believing has to change the way we live.
On clarity:
If you are following God, he never shows you the end. It’s always a walk of faith.
On Trust:
Unless you are willing to do the ridiculous, God will not do the miraculous.
On Love:
Love is not a feeling; it’s a decision.
On Mercy:
You can’t go to heaven hating somebody. Forgive now.
On Struggle
If you’ve got a cross, carry it. It’s to make you holy.
On Reality:
Those who tell the truth love you. Those who tell you what you want to hear love themselves.
On Error:
Every moment of life is like God saying, “Look, I know you messed up the last moment, but here’s a new one.”
On Pride:
Once you contemplate the humility of Jesus in the Eucharist, how can you possibly justify your pride?
