St Augustine Zhao Rong & Cc. Day of Penance
Genesis 46:1-7, 28-30. The salvation of the just comes from the Lord – Ps 36(37):3-4, 18-19, 27-28, 39-40. Matthew 10:16-23.
The Spirit of your Father will be speaking in you
Lord, today, right now, I need your help. Someone I love has made a bad decision, and my heart is aching, because already I see the hurt it will cause. I need to be as wise as a dove, and as cunning as a serpent, and even then, I can’t stop worrying about what I will say to him. I am full of fear. Help me to be brave, and to trust that as God is in all things, then God is in this situation too, no matter how bad it seems. Help me to live in joyful hope. Give me the grace to trust that your perfect will is at work even here, and give thanks always. All I ask is that you show me the next step, and be with me when I take it. Amen.Email this Print This Page
