Blessed are those that hunger and thirst for justice

 

January 16
“Blessed are those that hunger and thirst for justice,
for they shall have their fill.”
-Matthew 5:6
Today’s Reflection:
We must do more than agree with Church teaching on issues. We must form our conscience according to them, and we must let Church teaching move us forward with faith and confidence into the public square to proclaim the truth at every opportunity. How do your actions indicate your beliefs about the sanctity of life? How can you bring greater justice into the contemporary culture?

When everything is hopeless

 

January 15
“As long as matters are really hopeful, hope is a mere flattery or platitude; it is only when everything is hopeless that hope begins to be a strength at all. Like all the Christian virtues, it is as unreasonable as it is indispensable.”
-G.K. Chesterton
Today’s Reflection:
There is no hope without uncertainty. Perilous times, difficult circumstances, tenuous situations, and heartrending trials form the crucible in which hope is tested, refined, purified, and proven. Ponder this fact. How does it speak to you in your current circumstances?

The right of all men

 

January 14
“We have to uphold the right of all men to live, to own what is necessary to lead a dignified existence, to work and to rest, to choose a particular state in life, to form a home, to bring children into the world within marriage and to be allowed to educate them, to pass peacefully through times of sickness and old age, to have access to culture, to join with other citizens to achieve legitimate ends, and, above all, to enjoy the right to know and love God in perfect liberty.”
 -St. Josemaria Escriva
Today’s Reflection:
How are you actively participating in activities that speak for the poor, the weak, the disenfranchised, and the forgotten? During this week when we uphold the dignity of all human life, especially the unborn,
how can you do more?

New saints are needed

 

January 13
“We need heralds of the Gospel who are experts in humanity, who know the depths of the heart of many today, who share in his hopes and joys, his worries and his sadness, and at the same time are contemplatives, in love with God. For this, new saints are needed.”
-St. John Paul II
Today’s Reflection:
God has given us life at this time to be the “new saints” and the “new evangelizers” who will proclaim His love to the world.
How is God calling you to fulfill this very mission in your own life?

Mary’s Evangelization Plan

In his book, Queen of Militants, Father Emil Neubert teaches Christian militants that no attempt to spread the message of salvation to a soul should be attempted without prayer. But once we’ve done so, he lays out a plan on how to evangelize like Christ in a way that only Mary can teach us.
