Daily Meditation - Be it unto me

Consider the response of Mary to the angel – “May it be done to me according to your word “ (Luke 1:38) and the related commentary below:

“How perfectly it accords with what our savior wishes us to have unceasingly on our lips and in our hearts – ‘Thy will be done’…Her spirit, ravished with joy, looked upon everything that she was called upon to do or suffer each moment as a gift of God, who always fills with blessings a heart that is nourished neither by the world nor by fantasy, but by him alone.”

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

Daily Meditation – Prayer of St. Teresa of Avila

Let nothing disturb you,
Let nothing frighten you,
All things are passing away:
God never changes.
Patience obtains all things
Whoever has God lacks nothing;
God alone suffices.

- St. Teresa of Avila

Daily Meditation - Serving the World and a Request

To the readers of Silent Insight:

As many of you know, I felt a strong call in November of 2007 to make a depository of the "best of the best" spiritual insights that I had obtained via silent retreats, priests, family and friends.    

The notes from subscribers have truly been heartwarming and much appreciated. In these seven or so years, I have always handled the financial commitment of the website. Your incredible notes have been worth every penny.

 Now, in June 2015, I'm embarking on another spiritual adventure and that is a Father/Son mission trip to serve in the shanty towns in Peru. My oldest son, Kevin, is turning 15 and heading off to high school in the fall. He is also the one who seven years ago was the source of one SilentInsight meditation that is perhaps my favorite.  This was directly from Kevin's mouth at 8 yrs of age.

 "I have a dream and that dream is to change the world. And I don't want there to be mean people. And the way I'm going to make that happen is to be nice to them."  - Kevin Brown (2008 - 8yr. old)

 I mention this because we would like to ask for your prayers and financial support for the shanty town mission trip to Peru in June. We will be posting updates as we go on Silent Insight. Any amount is greatly appreciated. The link below allows for one to easily make a donation.  There is also a place to put your prayer intentions as we will pray for them during daily Mass while we are in Peru

Fr. Josh / Peru Mission Trip

Click the "Available Payments / Gifts" and select "Peru Fundraising". Also, please indicate in the Optional section - "Brian Brown / Kevin Brown" and any prayer intentions.

When your credit card is charged, it will indicate "GTCC" or "Georgia Tech Catholic Center" as this mission trip is being led by Fr. Josh Allen, the chaplin of the Georgia Tech Catholic Center in Atlanta.

Thank you and God Bless to each of you!

Daily Meditation – Consecrated in Truth

They do not belong to the world any more than I belong to the world. Consecrate them in the truth. Your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, so I sent them into the world. And I consecrate myself for them, so that they also may be consecrated in truth.

- John 17:16-19

Daily Meditation – Speak Lord

During the time young Samuel was minister to the LORD under Eli, a revelation of the LORD was uncommon and vision infrequent. One day Eli was asleep in his usual place. His eyes had lately grown so weak that he could not see. The lamp of God was not yet extinguished, and Samuel was sleeping in the temple of the LORD where the ark of God was. The LORD called to Samuel, who answered, "Here I am."

He ran to Eli and said, "Here I am. You called me." "I did not call you," Eli said. "Go back to sleep." So he went back to sleep. Again the LORD called Samuel, who rose and went to Eli. "Here I am," he said. "You called me." But he answered, "I did not call you, my son. Go back to sleep." At that time Samuel was not familiar with the LORD, because the LORD had not revealed anything to him as yet. The LORD called Samuel again, for the third time. Getting up and going to Eli, he said, "Here I am. You called me." Then Eli understood that the LORD was calling the youth. So he said to Samuel, "Go to sleep, and if you are called, reply, 'Speak, LORD, for your servant is listening.'" When Samuel went to sleep in his place, the LORD came and revealed his presence, calling out as before, "Samuel, Samuel!" Samuel answered, "Speak, for your servant is listening."

- 1 Samuel 3:1-10
