Daily Meditation – Created for a Purpose

“God has created me for some definite service; I have a mission… I am a link in a chain, a bond of connections between persons. He has not created me for naught.”
 
- Cardinal John Henry Newman

Daily Meditation – Standards and Values of Jesus

Consider the face of good and evil. Now, ask God to provide an intimate understanding of the way the Mind of Christ works. Furthermore, ask for an understanding of how those who have chosen only this way make decisions and value things.

- Adapted from the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius

Daily Meditation – Principle and Foundation

“In everyday life, then, we must hold ourselves in balance before all created gifts insofar as we have a choice and are not bound by some responsibility. We should not fix our desires on health or sickness, wealth or poverty, success or failure, a long life or short one. For everything has the potential of calling forth in us a more loving response to our life forever with God.

Our only desire and our once choice should be this: I want and I choose what better leads me to God’s deepening life in me. “

Daily Meditation – Our Purpose

In the literal version of the spiritual exercises of St. Ignatius, we are called to the consideration of the “Principle and Foundation”. Consider for a moment the first line of this consideration –

“Man is created to praise, reverence, and serve our God our Lord, and by this means to save his soul”

Daily Meditation – The use of time

[Consider the following and the use of our time]

Take time to think
 - It is the source of power.
Take time to play
- It is the secret of perpetual youth.
Take time to read
- It is the fountain of wisdom.
Take time to pray
- It is the greatest power on earth.
Take time to be friendly
- It is the road to happiness.
Take time to laugh
- It is the music of the soul.
Take time to give
- It is too short a day to be selfish.
Take time to work
- It is the price of success.
Take time to do charity
- It is the key to heaven.
