Afraid To Ask

Oh, how sad I am to see the multitude of devout souls living a pious life without earning much merit on behalf of their eternal salvation. So many of them do not attempt to come close to Me in any way as though they are afraid. (Jesus) (November 8, 1964)

Today’s Readings: 
But they did not understand this saying;
its meaning was hidden from them
so that they should not understand it,
and they were afraid to ask him about this saying. (Luke 9)

Prayer Meditation: O Lord like the Apostles we can be afraid to ask about the things we don’t understand in our lives and in our faith walk. We can bury under the rug that which is uncomfortable or a hard truth rather than take the issue to You! Oh what peace we often forfeit! Lord let us not just keep going through the motions in our spiritual life – let us never be afraid to ask the hard questions and to draw close to You- let us take everything to You in prayer and to the Sacraments!
