Prayer is Love, I want to Love

The Death of John The Baptist (2)


Quote  - forgiveness: "Being unwilling to..."

Herod had John the Baptist arrested because John had repeatedly said, “It is not lawful for you to have your brother’s wife. So Herodias, Herod’s wife, nursed a grudge against him and wanted to kill him”. (Mark 6:17-19)


Herodias’ grudge went so deep that she used her innocent young daughter to have John the Baptist beheaded!

Do I hold any grudges?


Lord Jesus, steer me to a life of humility and kindness so that I become an instrument of peace in my home and family.

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.
