Today’s Gospel: Luke 12:39-48
Stay the course, be constant, persevere. Do not allow yourself to lose focus. Keep your eye on the prize of Heaven; all else is illusion. Stay close in prayer, immerse yourself in things of the spirit. Watch uplifting programs, read Christian fiction, listen to Christian music, cleanup your conversation, attend Holy Mass as often as you can. Seek the Lord and all His ways. Be at peace and pray, pray, pray.
Are there things that I watch on television or books that I read that don’t conform to my beliefs? Does my conversation reflect my faith? What can I do to keep faithful to the teachings of the Catholic Church?
Prayer: Holy Spirit, give me the gifts of perseverance, courage and wisdom, so that I may faithfully live out the path chosen for me. Help me to pray when I don’t feel like it and when I fall, pick me up again so that I may be found ready when Jesus comes for me.
