Friday of the Eleventh Week of Ordinary Time
Where is Your Heart?
Through you, my little Carmelite, I want all to know the anguish that springs up from the boundless love of my maternal heart because of the danger threatening the entire world by the disintegration of the family sanctuaries. I direct my maternal cry to all of you, and in union with you, I want to save the world. (Mary) (January 17, 1964)
Today’s Readings: Jesus said to his disciples :”Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and decay destroy, and thieves break in and steal. But store up treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor decay destroys, nor thieves break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be. (Matthew 6)
Prayer Meditation- Lord, how easily it is to have our hearts set on the world and what it has to offer. We try to save maybe for a nice retirement or we have goals for our careers and our families. But Lord, all around us families are disintegrating- even if we are ok it hard not to see what is happening in our culture. Our Lady in these times calls us to join Her in setting our hearts on the salvation of souls and particularly the restoration of family life. Lord, open our eyes so we can see where our hearts are leading us- are they leading us and our loved ones to Heaven or are we living for those things that can be here today and gone tomorrow. Lord You are our treasure- help us to live for You and for Your Kingdom in our families and in our hearts!
