Will you lay down your life?

April 10
Palm Sunday
Simon Peter said to him, "Master, where are you going?"
Jesus answered him,
"Where I am going, you cannot follow me now,
though you will follow later."
Peter said to him,
"Master, why can I not follow you now?
I will lay down my life for you."
Jesus answered, "Will you lay down your life for me?
Amen, amen, I say to you, the cock will not crow
before you deny me three times."
-John 13:36-38

We become what we love

February 2
"We become what we love. Who we love shapes what we become."
-St. Clare of Assisi
    Today's Reflection:
It's February, the month of Valentine's Day. What a lovely quote to ponder at this beautiful time of year. When you stop and think about who you love and what you love, what comes to mind? How is God calling you to love Him more and the material things of this world less?

Rejoice and be glad

December 18
"Rejoice and be glad that so great and good a Lord, on coming into the Virgin's womb, willed to appear despised, needy, and poor in this world, so that men who were in dire poverty and suffering great need of heavenly food might be made rich in him."
-St. Clare of Assisi
Today's Reflection:
What poverty are you experiencing this Advent? How is our Lord asking you to trust Him with your suffering in order to allow Him to transform your pain into something rich and beautiful? Do you trust Him?
