Prayer: Come, Holy Spirit
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your faithful. And kindle in them the fire of Your love.
V: Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created.
R: And You shall renew the face of the earth.
Let us pray:
O God, Who instructed the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant us in the same Spirit to be truly wise and ever rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ, our Lord.
Exercise in Virtue – Forgiveness
“Let no one mourn that he has fallen again and again; for forgiveness has risen from the grave.”
-St. John Chrysostom
Food for Thought
“Unless there is a Good Friday in your life, there can be no Easter Sunday.”
~Venerable Fulton Sheen
Thinking about Our Lord’s life in reverse, we come to understand that every moment was an important part of fulfilling his mission: the highs, the lows, and the tedium in between. Nothing was wasted, or inconsequential to his purpose.
As we move through our lives, with our own highs, lows, and tedium in between, it is important to remember that nothing we do is insignificant. Every moment of our lives matter: for right now, for our future, and for eternity.
