Today's Thought. By: C.C.

"Who except God can give you peace? Has the world ever been able to satisfy the heart?" (Saint Gerard Majella)

"To love God as He ought to be loved, we must be detached from all temporal love. We must love nothing but Him, or if we love anything else, we must love it only for His sake. "(Saint Peter Claver)

Lord as we continue to reflect on You as our true source for love, joy, and peace may we constantly be drawn to recognize Your presence throughout our day. Help us break away from all that holds us back from You. Provide us with everything that You know we need. Lord we can not escape the realities of the world around us, but in turning to You we will always find a way to cope, heal, and accept. Assist us Lord in becoming more like your Apostles so that we may do Your will amidst a world that too often forgets Your ways. Lord please give us clarity so that we may recognize the true distinction between our wants and our true needs. Correct us Lord if we desire things of this world that are not motivated by a love for You. Thank you Lord for your constant protection throughout our earthy journey. Keep us safe until the day that we may be home with You. Amen. (C.C.)
