Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures
Blessed Are We
Maternal dignity is at the same time a vocation saturated with sufferings, and that is what I share with you. I thank you, my little one, for your participation that is continual and filled with sacrifices. I, as a loving Mother, can assure you of your heavenly reward.” (Mary) (August 27, 1964)
Today’s Readings: “Blessed are you who are poor, for the kingdom of God is yours. Blessed are you who are now hungry, for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who are now weeping, for you will laugh. Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude and insult you, and denounce your name as evil on account of the Son of Man. Rejoice and leap for joy on that day! Behold, your reward will be great in heaven. For their ancestors treated the prophets in the same way. (Luke 6)
Prayer Meditation- Lord, the world would have us believe that we are blessed when we live lives like the ones we might see on TV or the movies. We see only the exterior. But our real lives, Lord are our vocations- especially our duties to our families. These duties are our means to sanctification in this life. So blessed are we and let us rejoice because we belong to You and will live with You forever in Heaven!
