Monday: Blessings—Overflowing, Poured Into My Lap

Jesus promises blessings beyond belief when I give. To whom do I give my time and energy? Is it to career, work and chores? Is there anything left for God or people? Should I reorder my priorities?

Compassion – God’s and Ours:

In today’s Gospel, Jesus urges us to be compassionate to others as He is to us. The more non-judgmental and forgiving we are, the more receptive we will be to God’s immense love and peace. We “cannot receive” from God what we do not want to give to others.

Nothing is anything more to me; everything is nothing to me, but Jesus: neither things nor persons, neither ideas nor emotions, neither honor nor sufferings. Jesus is for me honor, delight, heart and soul.

- Saint Bernadette of Lourdes (1844-1879)
