Today’s Reflection: Give Me Strength
Dear Oh God, I ask not for easier tasks.
I ask for stronger aptitudes and greater talents
to meet any tasks which may come my way.

Help me to help others
so that their lives may be made easier and happier.
Strengthen my confidence in my fellow men
in spite of what they may do or say.

Give me strength to live according to the Golden Rule,
enthusiasm to inspire those around me,
sympathy to help lighten the burdens of those who suffer,
and a spirit of joy and gladness to share with others. — attributed to Harry Bullis, former chairman of General Mills.

Today’s Reflection: I never tire of reading this, nor sharing it — 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. Amen. — Thomas Merton.

Today’s Reflection: May the God of gentleness be with us, caressing us with sunlight and rain and wind. May God’s tenderness shine through us to warm all who are hurt and lonely. May the blessing of gentles be with us. May the God of wonder be with us, delighting us with sunrise and sunset, enchanting our senses, filling our hearts, giving us wide-open eyes that we may see the splendor in both the humble and majestic. — Catholic prayer site.
