The vitality of God be mine this day
the vitality of the God of life.
The passion of Christ be mine this day
the passion of the Christ of love.
The wakefulness of the Spirit be mine this day
the wakefulness of the Spirit of justice.
May I be fully alive this day
Today I will try to be attentive to the presence of God in my life and in this world.
You show me the path of life, O God,
In your presence there is fullness of joy.
God loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the love of God.
Let us ask the Holy Spirit for the grace to live daily according to the mind of Jesus and his Gospel.
The cure for all the ills and wrongs, the cares, the sorrows, and the crimes of humanity, all lie in the one word ‘love’. It is the divine vitality that everywhere produces and restores life.
Lydia M. Child
When you make a solid commitment to restructure the spiritual vitality in yourself, there is no end to the healing that you can experience in all areas of your life.
Sereda Aleta Dailey
Christianity is not a system of philosophy, nor a ritual, nor a code of laws; it is the impartation of a divine vitality. Without the way there is no going, without the truth there is no knowing, without life there is no living.
Merrill C. Tenney
A passion for God isn’t necessarily the same as abiding in God; it must be coupled with obedience to be true love for God.
The secret of the Christian’s passion is simple: Everything we do in life we do it as to God and not to men.
Never forget that justice is what love looks like in public.
By acting compassionately, by helping to restore justice and to encourage peace, we acknowledging that we are all part of one another.
To be just, it is not enough to refrain from injustice. One must go further, and refuse to play it’s game: substituting love for self-interest as the driving force of society.
