Don’t Worry Be Happy!

“I am guiding you, and if you worry, I might get the idea you are not happy with Me.” (Jesus) (March 24, 1963 )

Today’s Readings: Can any of you by worrying add a single moment to your life-span? Why are you anxious about clothes? Learn from the way the wild flowers grow. They do not work or spin. But I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was clothed like one of them. (Matthew 6)

Prayer Meditation- Worry, fear anxiety- they rob us of our peace! And yet we cannot add a single minute to our day! A quote attributed to St. Francis de Sales who struggled with scrupulosity and anxiety says it well- God commands us to pray but He forbids you to worry! Lord, You are our peace- let us bring everything to You in prayer with praise and thanksgiving (Philippians 4). Jesus we trust in You!
