Reflection for the Seventh Day

You know the old saying, ‘Show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are’ ? Well, Jesus had the strangest set of friends Levi (a hated tax-collector) Simon the Zealot (a revolutionary); women in prostitution and other ‘public sinners’. Maybe I’m not such bad company for Jesus, after all!

Today’s Prayer

Jesus, you once said, ‘I’ve come not to call the virtuous but sinners to repentance.’ During your ministry, you sat and ate with sinners. This practice of yours gives me great hope that your love will bid me welcome too!

Daily Invocation

Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in you.

Novena Prayer

Lord Jesus, the needs of your people open your heart in love for each of us. You care for us when we are lost, sympathize with us in loneliness, and comfort us in mourning; you are closest to us where we are weakest. You love us most when we love ourselves least; you forgive us most when we forgive ourselves least; and you call us to spread your love in whatever way we can. Lord Jesus, your heart is moved with compassion when we are suffering, when we need your help, and when we pray for each other. I ask you to listen to my prayer during this Novena, and grant what I ask. (Mention your intention silently.) If what I ask is not for my own good and the good of others, grant me what is best, that I may build up your kingdom of love in our world.
