Twenty Fifth Sunday of Ordinary Time

Small Things

“Suffer with courage, perseverance and a sincere abandonment. Don’t ponder if the suffering is large or small. All that you can still do for Me on earth is meritorious. Time is short, little sister, and never returns. (Jesus) (July 24, 1963)

Today’s Readings:

The person who is trustworthy in very small matters is also trustworthy in great ones; and the person who is dishonest in very small matters is also dishonest in great ones. If, therefore, you are not trustworthy with dishonest wealth, who will trust you with true wealth? If you are not trustworthy with what belongs to another, who will give you what is yours? (Luke 16)

Prayer Meditation: O Lord You give us many small things every day and many opportunities to be faithful- are we watching and listening? In that smile to others when we feel sick or sad, in small sacrifices for others even if it is just yielding a parking spot. In being patient and calm when the stress of every day hits- when we are quiet when we really just want to tell somebody off or when we accept with grace all of life’s trials giving our little Yeses to Your Will. All these small things done with love for Jesus and to save souls- Lord let us hear and see You always in all circumstances!
