The more I pray, the slower my anger comes, and the richer my kindness for others . . .
From the Holy Spirit I seek the gift of peace. My heart and soul are restless, and I ask the Holy Spirit to calm them. Then I can be a non-anxious presence with others.
I experience Jesus in the people around. I marvel at their capacity for love and compassion.
I sometimes feel the strength of the Holy Spirit in the middle of then night when I cannot sleep.
Sunday's gospel shows me who God is, and who I can be. Jesus was a man of prayer. I also need to be a person of prayer in order to face my challenges.
I try to be reliable. I want people to know they can count on me when they need me.
Not having the opportunity to break bread with my St. Charles community has taught me not to take it for granted. I miss everyone a great deal, especially when we gather for Eucharist. And I yearn for the day when we break bread together again
We show our faith when we demonstrate courage in the face of difficulty. What could you do this week to help strengthen someone?
I can be supportive and patient with those around me who are struggling to keep up their spirits while confined to home.
I can be supportive by reaching out to all my families and friends around the globe. Praying for everyone safety!
Resurrection is all about hope. We need big, strong doses of hope in the world today. I pledge to be a person of hope.
Appreciation and thanksgiving.
Make the world a better place by making myself a better person.
April 5: When have you felt that you betrayed the confidence of another, as Peter did when he denied Jesus?
Sometimes I complain to a friend about something someone else did or said, without being sensitive to the privacy involved.
