From Today's Office
Praise be to the LORD, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens.
We respond to the love of God that we have recognized in the events of our life with praise. If praise brings together in prayer the dimensions of faith, hope and love, it is clear that it is the substance of our life, the way we are called to live. —Enzo Bianchi, Echoes of the Word, Paraclete Press
Prayer of the Day
Lord Jesus, show me where in my judgments I hold my friends to standards that I am unwilling or unable to keep myself. Reveal to me my double standards, that my thoughts and my actions may bear the testimony of your mercy and truth. Amen.
