Memorial of Saint John Chrysostom

Put Them All Away

Mary: “The resistance against my words comes from your human doubts. By these doubts, you limit your soul’s capacity to act. This causes you spiritual harm. If you do not put them away, they will destroy your abandonment to us.” (Mary) (January 24, 1963)

Today’s Readings: But now you must put them all away:
anger, fury, malice, slander,
and obscene language out of your mouths.
Stop lying to one another,
since you have taken off the old self with its practices
and have put on the new self,
which is being renewed, for knowledge,
in the image of its creator. (Colossians 3)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, the theme today is putting away- we are full of doubts, anxieties, yes even sins of thought, word, and deed. We resist Your Grace- the only thing that can change us. And by putting up these little fights in our human will we are only hurting ourselves and limiting what You can do in us and through us. Yes, we must put them all away- anger, gossip,  any deliberate venial sins and attachments that keep us from taking off the old self and putting on the new self which is You fully alive in us!  Lord purify our intentions and our hearts as we  abandons ourselves to You!
