Thought for the day…

Sun.  May 20                                Pentecost Sunday

                           We need to ask the Spirit to stir in us love for the Father, ask Christ to inspire us with some of His love for the Father…through our day as it unfolds before us.  

                                                    

                                   Servant of God, Bishop William Giaquinta

 

                                        Suggestion:  Meditate on the prayer Jesus taught us today.

 

Mon. May 21,                Feast of St. Christopher Magallanes & Companions

                          I forgive with all my heart those responsible for my death and I ask God that the shedding of my blood serve the peace of our divided land.

 

                                                                                                                        Saint Christopher Magallanes

                                                                   

                                          Suggestion:  Not just words but with our heart must we forgive.

   

Tue. May 22,                                 Feast of St. Rita of Cascia

                          Let me, my Jesus, share in the suffering at least one of Thy thorns.

                         

                                                                                                                                St. Rita of Cascia

Wed. May 23,     Pray without ceasing.  In all circumstances give thanks for this is the will of God.      

 

                                                                                                                                St Paul to Theso. 5:17-18

                                           Suggestion:  Before each new task say a prayer and offer it to God           

  

Thu. May 24,          If a man wants to be always in God’s company he must pray regularly and read regularly.  When we pray we talk to God; when we read, God talks to us.

 

                                                                                                               Saint Isidore

Fri. May 25,                 Feast of Sts. Bede the Venerable and Mary Magdalene de Pazzi,

                        Prayer ought to be humble…persevering and accompanied with great reverence. 

                           One should consider that he stands in the presence of God and speaks with a Lord

                           before whom the angels tremble from in awe and fear.

St. Mary Magdalene de Pazzi

 

                           Suggestion:   Ask for the grace to pray reverently and not just babble.

       

Sat. May 26,                                   Feast of Philip Neri

 

                       Prayer is looking at the Father, listening to the Son…letting the Spirit mold us into the image of Christ.

                                                                                    Servant of God, Bishop William Giaquinta

 

                                       Suggestion:   Meditate on one line of the Pro Sanctity prayer today.
