Daily Meditation – Gratefulness & Happiness

Happiness is not what makes us grateful.

It is gratefulness that makes us happy.

Daily Meditation – Wedding Feast at Cana

On the third day there was a wedding in Cana in Galilee , and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the wedding. When the wine ran short, the mother of Jesus said to him, "They have no wine." (And) Jesus said to her, "Woman, how does your concern affect me? My hour has not yet come." His mother said to the servers, "Do whatever he tells you." Now there were six stone water jars there for Jewish ceremonial washings, each holding twenty to thirty gallons. Jesus told them, "Fill the jars with water." So they filled them to the brim. Then he told them, "Draw some out now and take it to the headwaiter." So they took it. And when the headwaiter tasted the water that had become wine, without knowing where it came from (although the servers who had drawn the water knew), the headwaiter called the bridegroom and said to him, "Everyone serves good wine first, and then when people have drunk freely, an inferior one; but you have kept the good wine until now." Jesus did this as the beginning of his signs in Cana in Galilee and so revealed his glory, and his disciples began to believe in him. After this, he and his mother, (his) brothers, and his disciples went down to Capernaum and stayed there only a few days.

John 2: 1-12

Daily Meditation – In the Hands of God

The following excert is from a prayer by Pedro Arrupe SJ after he suffered a debilitating stroke, the effects of which he patiently endured for the final ten years of his life.

More than ever I find myself in the hands of God.  This is what I have wanted all my life from my youth.

But now there is a difference; The initiative is entirely with God.

It is indeed a profound spiritual experience to know and feel myself so totally in God’s hands.

Daily Meditation – Road Ahead (Prayer Wisdom from Thomas Merton)

Daily Meditation – Road Ahead (Prayer Wisdom from Thomas Merton)

"My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road, though I may know nothing about it. Therefore I will trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone."

- Thomas Merton
