Have a Better Day

In an effort to continue to deepen my faith I went to a weekday morning Mass.  Again, I find it is so worth it — like a 25 minute power nap, except it’s full of prayer and wisdom.

Two nuggets to share:

That’s what we do.

In doing good, and doing right, we are only doing what we are supposed to do.  Sometimes the world sees that as extraordinary and tremendous.  It’s not.  It’s the way the world should be.  As good people, people of God, etc. (describe yourself here) that’s just what we (try to) do.  See the Good Samaritan for a good example.

Don’t look for trumpets blaring and pats on your back.   Know that you did the right thing.  Know that God knows.  True heroes don’t stand and look for applause.  They almost always say “I just did what had to be done.”

See the gospel reading here.

Prayer Opens Your Heart

The more I pray, the more I want to pray.

I enjoy it more; I need it more.  I hear more and talk less.

Do good.  Pray.  You’ll have a better day. Promise.
