With Jesus in the morning

Today we celebrate Mary’s birthday. Start the day with her, thanking the Lord for the life he has given you. “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home. For it is through the Holy Spirit that this child has been conceived in her” (Mt. 1:20). The Lord gave Joseph and the Virgin Mary the mission to watch over his son, caring for him in silence, humility, and fidelity. Today, he also entrusts you to watch over his creation, loving and serving those around you as you care for our common home. What part of this mission resonates with you today? Who in your life needs you? Entrust this to Mary’s intercession. Our Father…

Look for a space where you can take time to receive the mystery of Mary into your heart. Joseph can help you because “he is a receptive father since he welcomed Mary without conditions… Joseph’s welcome invites us to welcome others around us without exclusions, just as they are, and with preference for the vulnerable” (Pope Francis). Who needs your help today? Who is on the peripherees of your mind? Ask for Mary and Joseph’s intercession to love Jesus through those around you. Return to your day praying for the monthly intention.

Examine your heart and speak with the Lord about those fears that are not letting you move forward. Ask for the grace to be a bit freer to be able to go out to sea and be a fisher of souls for the Kingdom. Remember the monthly intention and care for our common home. Our Father…
