Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures
Memorial of Saint Francis of Assisi
Who Is Our Neighbor
Many people in your neighborhood have known you for years. You have fought your great battles before their eyes. (Mary) (November 19, 1962)
Today’s Readings: Which of these three, in your opinion, was neighbor to the robbers’ victim?” He answered, “The one who treated him with mercy.” Jesus said to him, “Go and do likewise.” (Luke 10)
Prayer Meditation- Lord who is my neighbor? And why is it that these days we don’t really seem to know our neighbors. Our neighbor is the single mother down the street struggling to raise kids alone, the affluent couple at Church whose child has just died of an overdose, the people at work who express opinions we don’t agree with but inside they are hurting and broken because they don’t know You Lord, the homeless beggar on our streets who has been failed by every system put into place to stop poverty but which cannot mend the human heart! Lord we can all bring You to them- sometimes in big ways, sometimes in small, sometimes just with a smile! Lord open our eyes to the brokenhearted! Like St. Francis, let us start by doing what is necessary, then what is possible and suddenly we will be doing the impossible, make us instruments of Your Peace!
