Jesus asked a crowd, what woman wouldn’t thoroughly sweep and search her home to find a lost silver coin and when she had found it, rejoice with her friends and neighbours?
He then added, “In the same way, I tell you, there is joy in the presence of God’s angels over one sinner who repents”. (Luke 15:10)
What will my greatest action be today? Will heaven’s Angels have reason to celebrate?
Lord Jesus, may my work, words and thoughts today, bring joy to the people around me and the multitude of heavens Angels and Saints, and to You, my God.
Prayer: Before A Crucifix
Behold, O Kind and Most Sweet Jesus,
I fall upon my knees in Thy sight,
and with the most fervent desire of my soul,
I pray and beseech Thee
to impress upon my heart
lively sentiments of faith, hope and charity,
with true repentance for my sins,
and a firm desire of amendment.
Whilst with deep affection and grief of soul,
I ponder within myself and mentally contemplate
Thy five most precious wounds,
having before my eyes that which David the prophet spoke,
O Good Jesus: “They have pierced my hands and feet,
they have numbered all my bones”. Amen.
