Daily Thoughts: A I read today’s Gospel (Luke 12:54-59) as I prepared to celebrate mass this morning I could not help but think of one of my favorite says by Fr. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, S.J = “Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.”
Daily Blessing: TGIF everyone! I hope your day has started off well. It looked like the sun was going to make its way out from behind the clouds but the clouds have thickened again as they continue to roll in from the northeast. Our nor’easter of the last few days continues to hang on. Hopefully it will move further north at some point we will see the sun today.
Daily Prayer: We believe, Lord, but let us believe more firmly. We hope, Lord, but let us hope more surely. We love, Lord, but let us love more warmly. We repent, Lord, but let us repent more deeply. Lord, give us humility, patience, and charity. Teach us goodness, knowledge, and discipline. Give us your love together with your grace, and we will be rich enough. Our God, our Jesus, our all in all. Amen (Adapted from a prayer by St. Anthony Mary Claret)
A Runner’s Thoughts: “At first an ordeal and then an accomplishment, the daily run becomes a staple, like bread, or wine, a fine marriage, or air. It is also a free pass to friendship. (Benjamin Cheever)
So to in the spiritual when talking about prayer!
Evening Thoughts: After encountering today’s Gospel this morning it has been on my mind as I have journeyed through the day doing a little fall cleaning.
Evening Blessing: Thursday evening greetings to all! I am running a little slow with my reflections today as I worked on a little cleaning project that I have wanted to do for some time now. I hope all of you had a great day and at least are on your way home for a peaceful and restful evening.
We had a rainy, dreary day here in Pelham but as I said above all was not lost. Sometimes it take a miserable day to get you motivated to do a little work! I hope your day was a little brighter and your work successful!
