The Extra Smile

Suffer with a smile! Let no one know. Let no one see. This is a secret between the two of us. Only God grants this and I give it only to the souls who know how to endure ceaseless sufferings with a smile. (Jesus) (November 1-2 1965)


Today’s Readings: Should anyone press you into service for one mile, go with him for two miles. Give to the one who asks of you, and do not turn your back on one who wants to borrow (Matthew 5)


Prayer Meditation- Lord we are asked to do things all the time, so many demands on our time. It is so easy to shrink back and want to become protective of our time, talents, and treasure when so much is coming at us and we just feel exhausted. The fiat we want to give to You to glorify You in all things becomes a big no when it is our family, our co-workers, our clients who keep pulling on us. Lord help us to go not only the extra mile today but with an extra smile! Because it is in the offering of our daily duty in union with You that we pick up our crosses and follow You!
