Morning Offering: 09. 19. 22

Today’s Reflection: St. Ignatius called the Eucharist the medicine of immortality. So our response at Mass immediately before receiving Holy Communion is an act of faith in Christ’s healing: ‘Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof. But only say the word and my soul will be healed.’ — Mary Healy, from Healing: Bringing the Gift of God’s Mercy to the World.

Today’s Reflection: God of silence and God of all sound, help me to listen.
Help me to do the deep listening to the sounds of my soul, waiting to hear your soft voice calling me deeper into you.
Give me attentive ears that begin to separate the noise from the sounds that are you; you who have been speaking to me and through me my whole life, for so long that you can seem like background noise.
Today help me hear you anew. — Author Unknown.

Today’s Reflection: 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.

Today’s Reflection: A variation on Reinhold Niebuhr’s classic, above: God grant me the serenity to stop beating myself for not doing things perfectly, the courage to forgive myself because I’m working on doing better, and the wisdom to know that you already love me just the way I am. — Unattributed.
