Today’s Reflection: A Prayer from Thomas Merton
My Lord God
I have no idea where I am going.
I cannot see the road ahead of me
and I do not know for certain where it will end.
Nor do I 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
that I have that desire in all that I am doing.
I hope 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 will never leave me
to face my perils alone. ― Thomas Merton.

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.
