Reflection

Life cannot revolve around myself and have meaning. In order for life to make any sense at all, there must be a defining center; neither myself nor any self is big enough to be that defining center. Only God, Source of all being, is the sustainer and center of all life. The real meaning of life, our true peace, and our strength to follow the witness of Christ can only be found in the deep belief that we are loved and cherished by this Holy Mystery, that we exist in that all-embracing Center, and that we will never be abandoned.

Prayer

May I live in the belief of God’s love.

 Action

I will try to be attentive to the revelations of God’s fidelity and love in my life.
