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?

Human life is sacred

January 18

“Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable. Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law.”

-Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2271

 

Today’s Reflection:

Human life is sacred. How do we allow this Church teaching to move us forward with faith and confidence in the public square to proclaim this truth?

The ultimate solution

January 17

“The ultimate solution for restoring and promoting justice at all levels
lies in the heart of each man.”
-Fr. Francis Fernandez

 

Today’s Reflection:

It is in the heart that injustice comes into existence. Examine your own heart in this regard. Seek the sacrament of penance and resolve to practice justice in the areas in which you have been remiss.
