20 MARCH, 2019, Wednesday, 2nd Week in Lent

LEADERSHIP IS AT THE SERVICE OF TRUTH AND LOVE A true leader is one who makes himself as a sacrificial offering for the greater good of humanity and often at his own personal expense and convenience. He is, so to speak, a ransom for others. This is the meaning of true leadership. Is that our motive for leadership and service as well? Like Jesus and Jeremiah, would we die for the love of humanity, especially when they do not value us or are ungrateful to us?

19 MARCH, 2019, Tuesday, St Joseph, Husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary

ST JOSEPH, A TRULY FAITH-FULL PERSON What is so special about the faith of St Joseph, the spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary? Joseph’s faith is a total surrender to the mystery of God in his life, in spite of the many things that must have puzzled him. In humble acceptance, he lived the mystery and found meaning in them. Do you have faith in God’s love and providence to be able to surrender to the mystery of God’s plan in your life?

Best Practices for Using the Daily Scripture Reflections
  • Encounter God through the spirit of prayer and the scripture by reflecting and praying the Word of God daily. The purpose is to bring you to prayer and to a deeper union with the Lord on the level of the heart.
  • Daily reflections when archived will lead many to accumulate all the reflections of the week and pray in one sitting. This will compromise your capacity to enter deeply into the Word of God, as the tendency is to read for knowledge rather than a prayerful reading of the Word for the purpose of developing a personal and affective relationship with the Lord.
  • It is more important to pray deeply, not read widely. The current reflections of the day would be more than sufficient for anyone who wants to pray deeply and be led into an intimacy with the Lord.

Note: You may share this reflection with someone. However, please note that reflections are not archived online, nor will they be available via email request.
