From Today's Office
God looks down from heaven on the people of this earth, to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God.
The second step of humility calls the climber to stop loving her own desires and no longer to find satisfaction in getting what she wants. —Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, The Rule of Saint Benedict, Paraclete Press
Prayer of the Day
Lord Christ, you have compassion on all your children and are swift to forgive. Give me strength to be faithful to my commitments, and grant me forgiveness when I go astray. In your Name I pray. Amen.
