Don’t you know the reason for all of your stumbling?
Don’t you know why you have doubts as you walk along the way ofgoodness?
Are you unaware of the reason for your being among those who join the poet in saying to the Lord: “Tomorrow we shall begin,” so that tomorrow we may say the same thing over again?
The reason is that you do not know Jesus!
And because you don’t know Him, you don’t love Him.
If you really want to…Now is the time!
Pick up your Gospel, and make your Meditation
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your faithful and kindle in them the fire of Your love.
Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created.
And You shall renew the face of the earth.
Let us pray.
O God, Who by the light of the Holy Spirit did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit, we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolation, Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
I Believe, Lord, that You are here present. Although my eyes do not see You, my faith senses You. Take any stray thoughts from my mind. Make me understand the truths which You wish to teach me in this meditation. Let me make up my mind to put them into practice. Your servant is listening; speak Lord, to my soul.
Mary, Mediatrix of all grace, grant that I may listen to and follow the voice of the Lord.
