From Today's Office
I will praise you, O Lord, with all my heart.
Psalm 138:1
While we shouldn’t stop pondering things, not all of life is serious. Jesus savored life; so should we. —Notker Wolf, Faith Can Give Us Wings, Paraclete Press
Prayer of the Day

Lord, why am I always so surprised when I am rejected and unappreciated? You were! And you told me that I would be. Help me not to unnecessarily offend people, but help me to understand that this life is difficult for a Christian. Give me the grace to trust you during hard times. Amen.
