"(...) let yourselves be taken over by the light of Christ, and spread that light wherever you are."           - St. John Paul II


Finding God in Our World


Make this world a better place

Monday | January 11, 2021

"Our duty is to work so as to make this world a better place, and to fight. Our faith is revolutionary through an impulse that comes from the Holy Spirit. We must follow this impulse in order to go out of ourselves, to be men and women in accord with the Gospel of Jesus. Any life is decided by the capacity to give oneself. It is there that one transcends oneself, that one becomes fruitful." - Pope Francis

Reflection:

When was the last time you called upon the Holy Spirit to help you reach out to another person and bear the fruit of kindness and mercy?


Children of God

CHILDREN OF GOD
CHILDREN OF GOD

"Do we remember that in baptism we received the 'seal' of our Heavenly Father, and that we became his children? To put it simply: we bear God's surname, our surname is God, because we are the children of God. Here lies the root of the vocation to holiness!"                 - Pope Francis

Reflection:

What do you know about the day you were baptised? How does being a child of God impact the decisions you make every day?

Compassion for all

Friday | January 1, 2021

"There was a beginning and there will be an end, 'a time to be born, and a time to die' (Eccl 3:2). With this truth, so simple and fundamental and so neglected and forgotten, Holy Mother Church teaches us to end the year and also our day with an examination of conscience, through which we review what has happened; we thank the Lord for every good we have received and have been able to do and, at the same time, we think again of our failings and our sins - to give thanks and to ask for forgiveness." - Pope Francis

Reflection: How do you end each day? For what in the past year do you give God thanks? Where in your life do you need to ask for forgiveness to enter the new year with a clean heart?
