24 JUNE, 2018, Sunday, The Nativity of John the Baptist

HELPING OUR CHILDREN TO FIND THEIR VOCATION IN LIFE As parents our task is to help and equip our children to become shepherds after the heart of Christ and to be servant leaders in the world. Like John the Baptist, we are called to prepare the way for the Lord. Parents have a serious duty to ensure not so much that they do well, be successful and wealthy in life. Rather, the preoccupation of parents must be to discern their vocation in life so that they can live out our common calling to be the light of the nations. Our task is to help them to be true servants of the Lord.

23 JUNE, 2018, Saturday, 11th Week, Ordinary Time

SLAVE OF GOD OR OF MAMMON? What we choose in life will determine our happiness because our focus is dependent on what motivates us in life. If God is whom we choose, we put God as the center of our life in all that we do or say. If Mammon is what we choose, then it becomes the controlling factor in all our thoughts, words and actions. The real tragedy for us is not that we choose God or mammon, but we want both. This explains why those of us who apparently choose God but not definitively or totally, continue to live in tension, in fear, in worry and lacking peace and joy in our lives

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.
