Today’s reflection comes from St. Francis of Assisi , he tells us to: “Sanctify yourself and you will sanctify society.” Something to think about and it brings to (my) mind a quote from St. Therese of  The Child Jesus who said and prayed, “Jesus, help me to simplify my life by learning what you want me to be… and becoming that person.”


Here’s a nice prayer to start the day:

Father you created me and put me on earth for a purpose. Jesus you died for me and call me to complete your work. Holy Spirit, you help me to carry out the work for which I was created and called. In your presence and name — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit — I begin my reflection. May all my thoughts and inspirations have their origin in you and be directed to your glory.

Well I don’t have a Spiritual Director … yet …  unless you count those I rely on through EWTN such as Daphne McLeod, Father John Corapi, Mother Angelica, Father Benedict Groeschel, Father Pablo Straub, Father Robert Spitzer and Father Charles Connor.

I keep thinking that I need a Spiritual Director who is physically standing right in front of me, but perhaps that is not the case. I thank God for EWTN though, it is responsible for chaning lives, not just mine but many many lives have been enriched and changed for the better by Mother Angelica, a nun with a vision who with the Lord’s help and graces, founded EWTN.

for the day of 10 January 2009, these are my notes:

There is this prayer that I like: 

Dear God,

You guide me through the fog of my deepest emotions and give me clarity when all seems dark and hopeless. With you there is comfort always. Amen.

I received it in my email as a “Daily Blessing” and so I shall record it here to keep.

“When we pray for temporal favors, God will give what we ask, or something more useful. He will grant us the grace which we desire, whenever it is profitable to our souls; or he will give us a more useful grace, such as the grace to resign ourselves to the divine will and to suffer with patience our tribulations, which shall merit a great increase of glory in Heaven.” –  Saint Alphonsus Liguori

Father Corapi often says, “God’s ways are so far above our ways as the Heavens are above the earth.”

and this one: “In all things, come always as a servant and you will never be disappointed.”

Come always as a servant…. definitely something to ponder on.

“Do not run from the hands of him who has brought you to the Lord, for never in your life again will you respect anyone as you did him.” – Saint John Climacus

  • Trinity Thursday, 30 October 2008
    It is not easy to describe the Trinity, let alone understand this great mystery of the Catholic Faith. Perhaps the most important thing we can say about the Trinity is that the one and only God is truly a dynamic and self-sufficient community of love, and is therefore the source, model and goal of all other love. Thus does God reveal Himself as Father, Son a […]
  • Abortion Friday, 25 July 2008

  • Apologetics Thursday, 24 January 2008
    As soon as one understands that apologetics comes from the Greek word for defense (apologetikos), the term becomes very easy to understand. Apologetics is a branch of study which aims to explain and justify Christian doctrine, demonstrating its reasonableness in the face of objections by those who do not accept it. Doing apologetics means defending the faith […]
  • Modernism Thursday, 17 January 2008
    As the name implies, Modernism is an ideology by which religious truths, and especially Catholic teachings, are derived and interpreted in accordance with personal religious experience, under the influence of the spirit of the current age. First emerging in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Modernism was condemned by Pope St. Pius X in 1907. It resurfa […]
