Memorial of Saint Bonaventure, Bishop and Doctor of the Church

Oh, how I love today’s Gospel. It reminds me that through Christ we are given a new lease on life. When we open our hearts to Jesus and live out the Commandments, we can come to know God better. Jesus came to us to offer us salvation, the forgiveness of sins, and eternal life with God, our Father. When we make a conscious decision to turn from sin and embrace the love of Christ, God will be revealed to us. Others will be able to see Christ present in our words and actions. Christ’s light will shine through us as we go out into the world and share our love of Christ with others.

Ponder:

How can I embrace the love of Christ in others and myself? What can I do today that illustrates my love of Christ, my commitment to living out the Commandments?

Pray:

Dear Lord, open my heart to receive your guidance this day, as I go out into this world. Help me to contemplate every decision that I make so that it may be a reflection of your presence within me. Help me to offer your love to all I meet this day, so that they may come to know you through me.
