Memorial of Saint Ignatius of Antioch
Good Works Prepared In Advance
Write what I say: Any person, in any place, who will read this Divine Emanation with which I honored you yesterday, will also (nobody is excluded) share in the outpouring of My graces that I will pour out over the souls by virtue of your merits united to mine, as a payment in advance for the drops of oil flowing from your sufferings.” (Jesus) (January 20, 1964)
Today’s Readings: For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not from you; it is the gift of God; it is not from works, so no one may boast. For we are his handiwork, created in Christ Jesus for good works that God has prepared in advance, that we should live in them. (Ephesians 2)
Prayer Meditation- Lord, we are saved by Grace and not anything we are doing which is a great relief! Faith is a gift! You have asked us though to cooperate with Your Grace to do the good works that have been prepared for us in advance. At times of our life, that may be exterior activity and serving the Church. At other times, and really at all times, it is prayer and also acceptance of sufferings that can bear the most fruit. Lord, help us to be docile to what You asking of us through the sacrament of the present moment offering all for love of You and salvation of souls!
