Daily Meditation – Secret of sanctity and happiness

“I am going to reveal to you the secret of sanctity and happiness. Everyday for five minutes control your imagination and close your ears to all the noises of the world, in order to speak to the Divine Spirit, saying to him:

“Oh, Holy Spirit, beloved of my soul, I adore you! Enlighten me. Guide me. Strengthen me. Console me. Tell me what I should do. Give me your orders. I promise to submit myself to all that you desire of me and to accept all that you permit to happen to me. Let me only know your will.”

“If you do this your life will flow along happily and serenely and full of consolidation, even in the midst of trials. Grace will be proportioned to the trial, and you will arrive at the gate of merit. This submission to the Holy Spirit is the secret of sanctity.”

- Cardinal Mercier

Daily Meditation - Driven to Prayer

Abraham Lincoln, on Prayer…    “I have been driven many times to my knees, by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go. My own wisdom, and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day.”

Daily Meditation – Loving enemies

"But to you who hear I say, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. To the person who strikes you on one cheek, offer the other one as well, and from the person who takes your cloak, do not withhold even your tunic. Give to everyone who asks of you, and from the one who takes what is yours do not demand it back. Do to others as you would have them do to you. For if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do the same. If you lend money to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit (is) that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, and get back the same amount. But rather, love your enemies and do good to them, and lend expecting nothing back; then your reward will be great and you will be children of the Most High, for he himself is kind to the ungrateful and the wicked. Be merciful, just as (also) your Father is merciful.

- Luke 6:27-36
