Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures
Friday of the Thirteenth Week of Ordinary Time
In Need of a Physician
“Many, many times, I experienced the
repentance that the Lord’s mercy brought forth in my soul. I want to repent for my sins like no
one ever has repented until now.” (Elizabeth) (First Sunday of January 1964)
Today’s Readings: He heard this and said,
“Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do.
Go and learn the meaning of the words,
I desire mercy, not sacrifice.
I did not come to call the righteous but sinners.” (Matthew 9)
Prayer Meditation- Lord, today we read about the conversion of Matthew and how he left everything to follow You! He brought his friends to dinner- the tax collectors and the sinners. They were to say the least not the righteous- but then who is without Your Grace? Lord, pour Your Mercy into our souls- may our repentance spur us to bring those we love to Your House so that they may too know Your Tender Mercy for them. Lord may we like the Good Samaritan pick them up and dress their wounds if needed until they are ready to come to You under their own power! (Luke 10)
