Do not worry

September 21

Feast of Saint Matthew, Apostle and Evangelist

“So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today’s trouble is enough for today.”

-Matthew 6:34

 

Today’s Reflection:

How often do you find yourself worrying about tomorrow? Next week? Next month? Next year? One of my favorite prayers is, “Jesus, I trust in you!” I repeat it so often! Next time you start worrying about the future, tell Jesus that you trust in Him, and watch your fear disappear!

St. Matthew, pray for us!

Sts. Andrew Kim Taegon, Paul Chong Hasang and Companions

September 20

“We have received baptism, entrance into the Church and the honour of being called Christians. Yet what good will this do us, if we are Christians in name only and not in fact?”

-St. Andrew Kim Taegon

Feast of St. Januarius

September 19

“The author has seen the marvel of the blood liquefaction at closest range and can give witness to the fact. Taking into consideration all the scientific investigations that have been made, he would say that a natural explanation of the phenomena does not seem possible.”

-Blessed Cardinal Schuster

 

Today’s Reflection:

Today is the feast day of St. Januarius. He is famous for the miracle of the annual liquefaction of his blood. What miracle does God want to perform in your life at this very moment? Do you trust that He can transform even the most challenging parts of your life?

Pray as though

September 17

“Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended
on you.”

-St. Augustine

 

Today’s Reflection:

Discerning when God is calling you to rest and wait, and when He is calling you to actively do something, is very important. He gives us the tools needed to live out our lives according to His will and purpose; He is also actively involved in every single thing we do. So ask Him to guide you, and then take the steps He calls you to!

the earth may be renewed.”

Preserve peace of heart

September 13

“But above all preserve peace of heart. This is more valuable than any treasure. In order to preserve it there is nothing more useful than renouncing your own will and substituting for it the will of the divine heart. In this way his will can carry out for us whatever contributes to his glory, and we will be happy to be his subjects and to trust entirely in him.”

-St Margaret Mary Alacoque

 

Today’s Reflection:

What do you hold onto in your life that is simply a desire of your own will? What in your life isn’t of God, something that isn’t God’s will? How can you trust Him more today with His will and relinquish your own?
