Morning Offering: 03. 25. 22

Today’s Reflection: Eternity is not what happens at the end of time, after we are dead. Every time we love and forgive then we have put a foot into eternity, which is God’s life. And that is why we can be joyful even on Good Friday, even in the face of suffering and death. — Timothy Radcliffe OP, in Seven Last Words.

Today’s Reflection: The World Peace Prayer
Lead me from death to life
From falsehood to truth

Lead me from despair to hope
From fear to trust

Lead me fom hate to love
From war to peace

Today’s Reflection: Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi (Prayer for Peace)
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.

O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Today’s Reflection: On This Day….
Mend a quarrel
Search out a forgotten friend
Dismiss suspicion and replace it with trust
Write a love letter
Share some treasures
Give a soft answer
Encourage youth

Manifest your loyalty in a word or deed
Keep a promise
Find the time
Forego a grudge
Forgive an enemy
Listen
Apologize if you were wrong

Try to understand
Flout envy
Examine your demands on others
Think first of someone else
Appreciate, be kind, be gentle
Laugh a little more.
Deserve confidence

Take up arms against malice
Decry complacency
Express your gratitude
Worship your God
Gladden the heart of a child
Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth

Speak your love
Speak it again
Speak it still again
Speak it still once again…. — Author Unknown

Today’s Reflection: Love is the mortar of our lives. When we perform our actions out of love for God and for our neighbour, it acts as the mortar that holds not only our experiences together, but our relations with God and with others.— St. Francis de Sales.

Today’s Reflection: Love is acceptance. When you love someone . . . you take them into your heart, and that is surely why it hurts so much when we lose someone we love, because we lose a part of ourselves. — Andrew the Apostle.
