Find my joy in you

April 21
St. Anselm, Bishop and Doctor (1033-1109)
"O God, let me know you and love you so that I may find my joy in you; and if I cannot do so fully in this life, let me at least make some progress every day, until at last that knowledge, love and joy come to me in all their plentitude."
-A prayer of St. Anselm
Today's Reflection
Today I will look "at least [to] make some progress" to find all my joy in God, Who gave me life.
St. Anselm, pray for me.

Love by loving

-Saint Francis de Sales
Today's Reflection:
Wow! If this doesn't prick your conscience, nothing will. Whom do you need to "learn to love by loving" today?

When a man loves a woman

February 14
"When a man loves a woman, he has to become worthy of her. The higher her virtue, the more noble her character, the more devoted she is to truth, justice, goodness, the more a man has to aspire to be worthy of her. The history of civilization could actually be written in terms of the level of its women.”
-Venerable Fulton Sheen
Today's Reflection:
The truth and relevance of this quote is striking. What can we do to elevate the virtue of the women in our lives?

The Good God

February 13
"The good God does not need years to accomplish His work of love in a soul; one ray from His Heart can, in an instant, make His flower bloom for eternity."
-St. Therese of Lisieux
 Today's Reflection:
When we trust in God and faithfully ask Him to change our hearts, He does so as swiftly as is necessary. Where can God heal and change my heart today? Do I trust Him to do so?

The hunger for love

February 12
"The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread."
-St. Teresa of Calcutta
Today's Reflection:
What a beautiful reminder it is to know that we all ache for love. And how lucky are we to have a Father who loves us so much. Today, thank God for the love He continually pours out on you, and remember to share that love with every soul you encounter.

A word or a smile

February 9
"A word or a smile is often enough to put fresh life in a despondent soul."
-St. Therese of Lisieux
Today's Reflection:
What an impact I can have on another person! When I encounter others, how do I respond? Do I pretend to not see them? Or do I embrace them with the warmth of Christ's love? Ask God to help you truly see others today.

My prayer for you

February 8
"And so, my prayer for you is that truth will bring prayer in our homes, and from the foot of prayer will be that we believe that in the poor it is Christ. And we will really believe, we will begin to love. And we will love naturally, we will try to do something. First in our own home, next door neighbor in the country we live, in the whole world."
-St. Teresa of Calcutta
Today's Reflection:
How often we forget how important it is to love those closest to us; the ones that can frequently be the hardest to love. Ask the Lord today to shine light on the areas within your family where you need to grow in greater love. Then, go home and love them!

The sweet and holy bond

February 7
Charity is the sweet and holy bond which links the soul with its Creator: it binds God with man and man with God.
-Saint Catherine of Siena
Today's Reflection:
How beautiful! What a lovely reminder that we are linked with our Beloved. Knowing this, how can we show extra gratitude today to Him for His constant presence in our lives? How can we recognize Him wherever we go?

Our Lord loves you and loves you tenderly

February 6
"Our Lord loves you and loves you tenderly; and if He does not let you feel the sweetness of His love, it is to make you more humble and abject in your own eyes."
-St. Pio of Pietrelcino
Today's Reflection:
What are your reactions to God's love? Do you embrace it and accept it, regardless of whether you feel its sweetness? Or do you reject it when you do not feel its consolations? Spend some time letting God love you today, even if you do not feel it initially.
