Healing rays

November 17
"Lo, the day is coming, blazing like an oven,
 when all the proud and all evildoers will be stubble,
 and the day that is coming will set them on fire,
 leaving them neither root nor branch,
 says the LORD of hosts.
 But for you who fear my name, there will arise
 the sun of justice with its healing rays."
-Malachi 3:19-20
Today's Reflection:
We long for the day when Jesus will come in all His glory and all will know that He is Christ the King. But for now, we must endure a world that is largely opposed to Him. Where do you find strength to persevere?

Inherit the kingdom

November 16
"Then the king will say to those at his right hand, ‘Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.’"
-Matthew 25:34-36
Today's Reflection:
An earthly inheritance usually entails money, a house, and the belongings therein. Our heavenly inheritance is beyond anything we can ever imagine because it is the entering into the beatitude of God, our heavenly Father.

November 15
"For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain."
-Philippians 1:21

His kingdom

November 14
"I kept looking in the night visions, And behold, with the clouds of heaven One like a Son of Man was coming, And He came up to the Ancient of Days and was presented before Him. And to Him was given dominion, Glory and a kingdom, That all the peoples, nations and men of every language might serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion which will not pass away; And His kingdom is one which will not be destroyed."
-Daniel 7:13-14
Today's Reflection:
Do you ever think about eternity with God? What will it be like? Who do you expect to see there? Ponder these things for a few moments today.

His time is short

November 13
"Rejoice then, you heavens
and those who dwell in them!
But woe to the earth and the sea,
    for the devil has come down to you
with great wrath,
because he knows that his time is short!"
-Revelation 12:12
Today's Reflection:
Satan's time on earth is short but Sacred Scripture tells us that he prowls around like a roaring lion seeking someone to devour. When you consider this, how does it motivate you to utilize your spiritual weapons -- the rosary, the sacraments, prayer, etc.?

A single hour

November 12
"And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life?"
-Matthew 6:27
Today's Reflection:
How much time is wasted on worry? The grace we expend on worry and regret robs us of the grace we need for the present moment. Entrust your cares to the Lord and live today for the glory and honor of God.

A day in thy courts

November 11
“How lovely is thy dwelling place,
O Lord of hosts!
My soul longs, yea, faints
  for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and flesh sing for joy
  to the living God.
Even the sparrow finds a home,
  and the swallow a nest for herself,
  where she may lay her young,
at thy altars, O Lord of hosts,
  my King and my God.
Blessed are those who dwell in thy house,
  ever singing thy praise!
Blessed are the men whose strength is in thee,
  in whose heart are the highways to Zion.
As they go through the valley of Baca
  they make it a place of springs;
  the early rain also covers it with pools.
They go from strength to strength;
  the God of gods will be seen in Zion.
O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer;
  give ear, O God of Jacob!
Behold our shield, O God;
  look upon the face of thine anointed!
For a day in thy courts is better
  than a thousand elsewhere.
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
  than dwell in the tents of wickedness.
For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
  he bestows favor and honor.
No good thing does the Lord withhold
  from those who walk uprightly.
O Lord of hosts,
  blessed is the man who trusts in thee!"
-Psalm 84
Today's Reflection:
We enjoy visiting new cities -- the art, architecture, parks, walkways, museums, restaurants, etc. But as the Psalmist exclaims here, "a day in thy courts is better than a thousand elsewhere." Spend a few minutes recalling some of your favorite "earthly cities" with an appreciation that heaven far surpasses anything that you have ever experienced.
