From Today's Office
I have taken an oath and confirmed it, that I will follow your righteous laws.
Psalm 119:106
Meditation
To what are we called? We are called to be workers. Sincerely living a spiritual life takes a lot of effort. We are not merely spectators of the work God accomplishes in us; we are summoned to active participation. We are called to work hard to ensure that the grace of God is not poured out in vain. —Michael Casey, The Road to Eternal Life
Prayer of the Day for Eucharist

God of truth, you send your Holy Spirit to lead your people in your straight and loving ways. So inspire all who are called by your name that they may forsake the ways of false peace and steadfastly pursue the truth in all they say and do. We ask this through him who is the truth, even Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
