Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures

Friday of the Ninth Week of Ordinary Time

Grains of Dust

O my Jesus, blessed be Your Holy Name by which I came to be blessed. I, a lowly nothing! My Lord, my adored Jesus, it is also Your infinite goodness that proclaims Your glory. How good You are to keep my soul in constant humility! My Lord, Your glory showed itself even more for having praised me. I am annihilated. Like a grain of dust, I fall at Your feet.” (January 13, 1966

Today’s Readings: The LORD gives sight to the blind.
The LORD raises up those who are bowed down;
    the LORD loves the just.
The LORD protects strangers. (Psalm 146

Prayer Meditation- Lord ,we bless You, praise You and adore You because in the first reading of today, we read not only a happy ending for Tobit and Sarah with sight restored and marriage but we see Your faithfulness. We see how You give sight to the blind, raise up those who are bowed down, and protect the stranger and all of us are strangers in this world because You are our true home! We are lowly nothings, grains of dust, and yet You see us, You hear us, and You restore us in due time. Lord may we always trust Your perfect timing. If what are  praying for is delayed let us wait with trust because You are never late (Habakkuk 2:3). Jesus, we trust in You!
