Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures
Friday of the Seventh Week of Ordinary Time
Complain, Complain, Complain
“My Divine Blood waters all the particles of your body, making it strong and able to withstand this great martyrdom that you suffer continually without a word of complaint.. (Jesus) (December 12, 1964)
Today’s Readings: Do not complain, brothers and sisters, about one another, that you may not be judged. Behold, the Judge is standing before the gates. Take as an example of hardship and patience, brothers and sisters, the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. Indeed we call blessed those who have persevered. (James 5)
Prayer Meditation- Lord some days it seems all we do is complain! We complain about the weather, the traffic, our family, our co-workers, our circumstances- not giving a thought that we will account for every word that comes from our mouth (Matthew 12:36). Lord, we are so weak but it is Your Precious Blood that makes us strong so that we can offer all of our prayers, works, joys, and sufferings to You, including those “sandpaper” people You have sent to sanctify us, without complaint!
