"What a weakness it is to love Jesus Christ only when He caresses us, and to be cold immediately once He afflicts us. This is not true love. Those who love thus, love themselves too much to love God with all their heart."( St.Margaret Mary Alacoque)

Lord today I pray that You constantly provide us with the strength and knowledge of what it truly means to love so that we are able to give You all of our heart. May we recognize our sufferings and times of affliction as a means of growing into a deeper union with you, and not as a reason to turn away. Let us always turn to You through everything. Lord remind us that it is in giving our hearts to You fully that we will come to know true love. May we recognize the things of this world as fleeting and see Your unchanging, unconditional, and constant love through everything. Help us to view our trials as a "kiss from the cross" as Blessed Mother Teresa did. Help our hearts develop so that we are able to love You even through our greatest trials. Lord we long for the joy that only you can bring into our lives. Make us open, patient, and receptive to everything You give. Today I also pray for those who do not know You Lord. I pray that they are brought comfort in their time of trial. May they recognize the need for You in their lives to help carry the weight of their afflictions. Thank you for all that You have given us. Thank you for standing beside us as we journey through our days. May we do everything out of love for You. Amen (C.C)
