Daily Meditation - Prayer - The Most Precious Time

When prayer seems lacking in fruitfulness:  Jesus says that whoever loses his life for my sake, will find it. Similarly, it can be said of prayer that whoever loses her time for Jesus' sake will discover that it becomes the most precious time. Waste your time for Jesus' sake. You will not be disappointed.

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 - Embracing the Present Moment

 

You do not need to know precisely what is happening, or exactly where it is all going. What you need is to recognize the possibilities and challenges offered by the present moment, and to embrace them with courage, faith, and hope.

- Thomas Merton

Daily Meditation – God’s Love for Us (Part I)

[During the “first week” of the spiritual exercises of St. Ignatius, consideration is given to how much we are loved by God. From this consideration, we begin to realize how much we have not responded to that goodness and hence are then able to respond to our sinfulness with open honesty. This understanding of and sorrow for our sins opens us to the love and mercy of God. Consider the following in the context of God’s love for us and our love response to him as well]

“Behold God beholding you … and smiling.”

- Anthony de Mello SJ
