Jesus said, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the kingdom of heaven – only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven”. (Matthew 7:21)
It’s not enough to say we are Christians. We must love one another, repent of our sins and live a holy life including, regularly availing of the sacraments.
Reflection (Extract from Prayer by St Thomas Aquinas)
Lord Jesus, grant that I may ardently desire, carefully examine, truly know, and perfectly fulfil those things that are pleasing to you, to the praise and glory of your holy name. Amen.
Prayer: Most Sacred Heart of Jesus (From Akita Prayer)
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus,
truly present in the Holy Eucharist,
I consecrate my body and soul
to be entirely one with Your heart,
Receive this humble offering of myself.
Use me as You will for the glory of the Father
and salvation of souls.
Most Holy Mother of God,
never let me be separated from Your Divine Son.
Defend and protect me as Your special child. Amen.
