Today’s Reflection: Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.
Amen. — Hail Mary, traditional prayer.

Today’s Reflection: I am not alone. Why do I keep forgetting that? You see me, you know me! Every heartbeat mirrors your own. My every emotion finds a reference in you first. Give me the grace to entrust my fragile and often self-centered self to you, the God-who-loves-me. I surrender everything to you – even my most embarrassing vulnerabilities. Your grace is enough for me. — Monique Jacobs, spiritual director.

Today’s Reflection: Jesus, I am grateful to be walking next to you. I don’t see very well when I depend on myself alone. Please help me see through your eyes. Help me know how to respond to the people on our path. Please, give me your grace to reach out to them as you would. Amen. — Mary Ann Gessner.

Morning Offering: 01. 27. 22

Today’s Reflection: Push My Buttons Prayer –
Lord, it’s likely that sometime today
someone will push my buttons
challenge my good will
misread my intentions
tick me off
try my patience
rattle my cage
judge me in haste
test my kindness
or do all of the above…

Give me the grace I’ll need at such times
to respond with patience
to trust and accept
to listen carefully
to reach out in peace
to be fair and just
to anticipate goodness
in all my words and deeds…

I know this is a lot to ask, Lord,
but I need your help
to do for others
as I’d have them do for me.
Amen. — Rev. Austin Fleming.

Morning Offering: 08. 25. 21

Today’s Reflection: Grace is when God gives us good things that we don’t deserve. Mercy is when He spares us from bad things we deserve. Blessings are when He is generous with both. Truly, we can never run out of reasons to thank Him. God is good all the time. — Unattributed.
