O my Jesus, I beg you on behalf of the whole church; grant it love and the light of Your Spirit, and give power to the words of priests so that hardened hearts might be brought to repentance and return to You. Lord give us holy priests; you yourself maintain them in holiness. O Divine...
Meditation: You need not cry very loud #God is nearer to us than we think.
Ponder: living with #cancer can bring us to our knees as we wonder where God is in all this pain.

Do not look forward in fear to the changes of life;
Rather look to them with full hope that as they arise.
God, whose very own you are, will lead you safely
through all things.
And when you cannot stand it, God will carry you
in His arms.
Do not fear what may happen tomorrow;
The same everlasting Father who cares for you today
will take care of you today and every day.
He will either shield you from suffering or will give you
unfailing strength to bear it.
Be at peace and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations.
~St. Francis de Sales
“Everywhere, wherever we find ourselves, wherever we are called to bear witness, we must protect life, we must guard human beings from everything that can crush them underfoot. Woe to those who inflict suffering. And woe to those who have destroyed a human life, who have desecrated an image of God, even when it was already breathing it’s last, even when it seemed to represent only a vestige of humanity.” ~Father Alfred Delp~Tami Schuelke
“Life, and especially our spiritual life, often drags on heavily…It is weary work to be always fighting with our evil passions, and disheartening work to make so little way. Temptations tease us, and scruples worry us; and to be dead, buried, and safe in purgatory, seems the limit to our peevish ambition. And why is this? Because we do not serve Jesus for love. If we did, it would be with us as it was with Jacob. Years would seem but days, for the greatness of our love. Now let us see if it is, after all so impossible for us to serve our dear Lord out of Love.” ~ Father Faber~
