Morning Offering: 07. 31. 22

Today’s Reflection: Never tire of this one – 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.
Amen. — Peace Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi.

Today’s Reflection: Lord, bring your saints into my garden to remind me each day through their examples. Let St. Francis inspire me to love the birds and all living things. Let St. Phocas the gardener be my guide in enriching the soil. Through St. Thérèse, the Little Flower, may I make every act, no matter how small, one that honors you. Amen. — from God In The Garden.

Today’s Reflection: We praise you, Lord, for all your creatures,
especially for Brother Sun,
who is the day through whom you give us light.
And he is beautiful and radiant with great splendour,
of you Most High, he bears your likeness.
We praise you, Lord, for Sister Moon and the stars,
in the heavens you have made them bright, precious and fair. — excerpt of Canticle of the Sun, Saint Francis of Assisi, whose feast day it is today.
