Thank the Lord for the new day and the gift of life that He gives you. “At this some of the scribes said to themselves: this man is blaspheming. Jesus knew what they were thinking and said, ‘Why do you harbor evil thoughts?'” (Mt. 9:3-4).

Take a break to check in with yourself and repeat the intention put forth by the Pope: to be architechts of dialogue. “To participate in the construciton of an open, diverse, and supportive society, it is essential to constantly develop and take on a culture of dialogue as the way to go without backing down” (Pope Francis). To opt for dialogue is to renounce “my truth” and trust in “the truth” to seek out others. I recommit my day to receiving others and renew my offering to the Lord.

Look for a quiet place and prepare yourself to review the day, thanking the Lord for what you received from Him. Who were you with today? Were you able to cultivate a respectful dialogue? Did you receive others as they are, or did you try to change them according to your own perception of them? Be thankful for these people who offer a richness that you maybe don’t recognize. Make a resolution to act as a listener tomorrow. Hail Mary…
