Jesus On Retaliation (2)


Sharing of bread

Jesus said, “Give to the one who asks you and do not reject the one who wants to borrow from you”. (Matthew 5:41)


We are possessive by nature; it is usually easier to collect than to give!

Yet, most people would agree that they get more longer-lasting joy from giving than receiving!


Lord Jesus, open my heart to the cry of the poor. Help me to be more understanding of their plight. May I never turn my back on my hungry brothers and sisters.

Prayer: My Life (St Theresa of Lisieux)

My life is but an instant, a passing hour.
My life is but a day that escapes and flies away.
O my God, you know that to love you on earth
– I only have today.

Lord, what does it matter if the future is gloomy?
To pray for tomorrow, O no, I cannot!
Keep my heart pure, cover me with your shadow
– Just for today.

O Divine Pilot, whose hand guides me.
I’m soon to see you on the eternal shore.
Guide my little boat over the stormy waves in peace
– Just for today.
