Mary said to the Angel Gabriel, “How will this be?”
The Angel replied, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. Therefore the child to be born will be holy; he will be called the Son of God”. (Luke 1:34-35)
How often do I describe my work as impossible? With God on my side, everything is possible!
Lord Jesus, give me the strength to embrace my burden today. Help me to understand that, it is out of your perfect love for me, I received it.
Prayer: Poor – Daily Service
Make us worthy, Lord,
to serve our brothers and sisters throughout the world,
who live and die in poverty and hunger.
Give them, through our hands,
this day their daily bread,
and by our understanding love,
give them peace and joy.
Make us, Lord,
worthy to serve our brothers and sisters,
scattered all over the world,
who live and die alone and poor.
Give them today, using our hands, their daily bread.
And, using our love, give them peace and happiness. Amen.
