Daily Meditation – Mother Teresa Guidance

[Consider Mother Teresa’s sign on the wall of the children’s home in Calcutta]

ANYWAY

People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered,
LOVE THEM ANYWAY

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives,
DO GOOD ANYWAY

If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies,
SUCCEED ANYWAY

The good you do will be forgotten tomorrow,
DO GOOD ANYWAY

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable,
BE HONEST AND FRANK ANYWAY

What you spent years building may be destroyed overnight,
BUILD ANYWAY

People really need help but may attack you if you help them,
HELP PEOPLE ANYWAY

Give the world the best you have
And you’ll get kicked in the teeth,
GIVE THE WORLD THE BEST YOU’VE GOT ANYWAY.

- Source:  Mother Teresa: A Simple Path, page 185

Daily Meditation - Navigating Hard Times

- Consider your trials and use the following as insight for the consideration of the circumstances and the immediate gift of wisdom upon asking.

Consider it all joy, my brothers, when you encounter various trials, for you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. And let perseverance be perfect, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. But if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly, and he will be given it.

- James 1: 2-5

Daily Meditation – No Moment is Trivial

Precious moment, how small in the eyes of my head and how great in those of my heart, the means whereby I receive small things from the Father who reigns in heaven! Everything that falls from there is very excellent, everything bears the mark of its maker

- The Sacrament of the Present Moment by Jean-Pierre de Caussade

Daily Meditation - Examination of Conscience

Central to the Spiritual Exercises is the practice of the examination of conscience each day. At the end of the day (or at other times during the day as well), take a few minutes to reflect and consider the day just experienced. Look over the day. Give thanks for the big and small things. Consider all gift! What generated emotions – happy or sad? Where did you feel God’s hand at work? Where could I have followed God more closely today?

Pray for clarity to see “myself as I am” and know that God will reveal “me to myself.” Let God reveal needed changes. Express sorrow for sins. Look positively toward tomorrow.

“… that he may instruct us in his ways, that we may walk in his paths.” – Micah 4:2

- Adapted from the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius
