Daily Meditation – Unreserved Abandonment to God

“Few souls understand what God would accomplish in them if they were to abandon themselves unreservedly to Him and if they were to allow His grace to mold them accordingly.”

- St. Ignatius of Loyola

Daily Meditation – Become an instrument of peace

[Consider the following prayer from St. Francis. Read the full prayer and then just meditate on the first line]

Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.

Amen.

- Saint Francis of Assisi

Daily Meditation - Open Wide the Doors to Christ

“And so, today, with great strength and great conviction, on the basis of long personal experience of life, I say to you, dear young people: Do not be afraid of Christ! He takes nothing away, and he gives you everything. When we give ourselves to him, we receive a hundredfold in return. Yes, open, open wide the doors to Christ – and you will find true life.”

- Pope Benedict XVI, Homily, April 24, 2005

Daily Meditation - Finding God & Falling in Love

“Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in a love in a quite absolute, final wayWhat you are in love with, what seizes your imagination will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the mornings, what you will do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything.”

- Pedro Arrupe S.J.

Daily Meditation – Welcoming Life’s Circumstances

The great Jesuit writer Jean-Pierre de Caussade wrote of how everything in life is to be welcomed as an expression of God’s will. In doing so, he says that we must “accept what we very often cannot avoid, and endure with love and resignation things which could cause us weariness and disgust. This is what being holy means.” He goes on to say that “God speaks to every individual through what happens to them moment to moment… The events of each moment are stamped with the will of God… We find all that is necessary in the present moment.”
