With Jesus in the morning

Today we celebrate the feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. I am grateful for the great mission of the Carmelite work in the world. In today’s Gospel, Jesus says: “Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). In the Lord my heart rests, only in him do I find peace. Even so, the routine of daily life often makes me forget these truths. I ask the Lord to teach me how to rest in him. Today I will try to give him a special time. Through Our Lady’s intercession, I offer this day for the Pope’s intention for this month: For families, so that they can be helped and accompanied. Hail Mary…

“Pay attention to what Mary does; imitate her…and that God of goodness will reward your faith” (St. Therese of Lisieux). Mary comes to meet us to help us in times of great distress and to intercede for us before Jesus, so that his grace may be poured out on us. His grace helps us to overcome life’s challenges, to overcome all battles against evil. Mary always guides to pray incessantly and to change our conduct. Mother of God and mine, I ask you to help me to be faithful to Jesus, to follow in your steps and to purify my intentions and actions, in order to love and serve your Beloved Son in everything.

Give thanks to God for any graces you received today. Become aware of the painful or sad times of the day. Did you hurt someone today? We usually hurt those we love. How could you repair the damage caused? Tomorrow, try to extend a gesture of love to someone that you hurt. Hail Mary…
