Is this true in my case?

"You did not choose Me. It was I who chose you." (Jn 15:16)

Reflection: For what I am and what I have, I give thanks to the one and only God. His faithful grace is always with me in everything...and everywhere.

This should inspire in me not only a sincere humility and a spirit of filial gratitude, but also (and most importantly) the desire to hold fast to God's outstretched merciful hand, so that none of His graces may be fruitless in me. Is this true in my case?

Prayer: Merciful God, I give you thanks and praise for all the graces of my life. Carry to fulfillment all that You have begun in me. Amen.

To Hope against hope

Master, we have toiled the whole night and have taken in nothing; but if You say so, I will let down the nets. (Lk 5:5)

It is a sad lot to work in vain! Yet it also means to Hope against hope, and to have confidence in God, even in the most bitter hour of discouragement and delusion.

God's Word and His blessings will create something new...even from apparent ruin. Why do I so many times, forget this?

Prayer: My Lord and my God, I trust in You. Let me humbly and devoutly submit myself to your holy will. Amen.
