Accept the Cross

July 13

July 13

In forming a family, a community of love, you have to accept the cross – embrace it gloriously and willingly. Your cross is composed of little things and of the acceptance of each other as you are. You must develop the ability to see each other’s talents, and to rejoice in them and be glad about them.”

Sinners, Each One of Us

June 10

Yes, we are all sinners, but let us never forget that we are saved sinners. It is obvious that we are going to stumble a million times between our birth and death. But when we look at the Gospel, we see immediately that God came, not for the perfect ones, but for sinners. That means each one of us.”

     Today’s Reflection:

What solace these words bring to me as I consider my latest regret, my latest transgression! Thank you, Jesus, for reminding me today of your saving act of redemption.
