Counting The Cost

Extract

Homeless man and his possessions

Jesus said to those who wished to follow him, “Not one of you can be my disciple if he does not renounce all his own possessions”. (Luke 14:33)

Thought

“Do not pray for easy lives; pray to be stronger people. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers; pray for powers equal to your tasks”. (Ven. S Casey)

Our material wealth is a temporary gift from God, to be used wisely. Collect more spiritual wealth today.

Reflection

Lord Jesus, may my prayers and actions of today fill me with the grace and blessings of your Holy Spirit. Thank you, Jesus.

Prayer: Solace

May Christ support us all the day long,
till the shadows lengthen,
and the evening comes,
and the busy world is hushed,
and the fever of life is over
and our work is done.
Then in his mercy
may he give us a safe lodging,
and holy rest
and peace at the last. Amen.
