Daily Meditation - Priorities on Life

The late Fr. Jim Babb SJ of the St. Ignatius House in Atlanta, previously spoke on priorities and how we are praising, reverencing, and serving God. He gave these four items with which to meditate.

1)  Health - Getting enough sleep? Exercise? Good Foods? Your body is a temple of God.

2)  Mind - What are you watching? What are you letting into your mind?

3)  Work/Career - Are you making it your God? Are you using your talents?

4)  Marriage - Are you spending time and communicating with your wife?

Daily Meditation - Open Wide the Doors to Christ

“And so, today, with great strength and great conviction, on the basis of long personal experience of life, I say to you, dear young people: Do not be afraid of Christ! He takes nothing away, and he gives you everything. When we give ourselves to him, we receive a hundredfold in return. Yes, open, open wide the doors to Christ – and you will find true life.”

- Pope Benedict XVI, Homily, April 24, 2005

Daily Meditation – First, Listen!

- Consider the guidance below, especially of being quick to listen.

Know this, my dear brothers: everyone should be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath, for the wrath of a man does not accomplish the righteousness of God.

- James 1: 19-20

Daily Meditation – Contemplative in Action

One of St. Ignatius’s early companions, Jeronimo Nadal coined phrase “simul in actione contemplativus” meaning the contemplation of the presence of God and experiencing the reality of spiritual things. A common theme of St. Ignatius was the finding of God in everything.  Accordingly, consider your life and daily schedule. The perceived good and bad, the stressful and nonstressful, etc. From there, reflect and try to find God in the midst of each circumstance.

Daily Meditation – In memory of my dad, J.Edward Brown

In memory of my dad, James Edward Brown, who died on this date (4/3/2011).

[Consider the following with your life and the bigger picture with God in eternity]

Life is but a stopping place,
A pause in what's to be,
A resting place along the road
To sweet eternity.

We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way,
We all were meant to learn some things,
But never meant to stay.

Our destination is a place
Far greater than we know.
For some, the journey's quicker,
For some, the journey's slow.

And when the journey finally ends,
We'll claim a great reward
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the Lord.
