Pilgrimage 2007 Thought #1

January 16, 2007

Homily discussed hope as mentioned in the first reading. Also mentioned the Anchor, Heart, and Cross as symbols of HOPE, CHARITY, AND FAITH.

Christ is the Anchor.

Story re. St. Jean-Marie Baptiste Vianney talking to another parish priest, complaining about his flock. The Curé of Ars asked if he was praying and sacrificing enough for them.

It struck me that I am not praying and sacrificing enough for my children. Now, before I reach for a hairshirt, it occurred to me that there is an easy, built-in, quick fix for this problem: pray for my children on the ride home. It makes sense, since I pray for my patients on the way to work. I could pray for patience on the way home. It would be a start.

Hats off to the wife who practices perfect obedience in the presence of imperfect obedience...

Such is life.

Prayer to Our Lady of the Mysterious Decapitation

Mary my mother, take my hand today, and all days.
Lead me away from all occasions of sin.
Guide me in fulfilling your last words in the Gospel,
"Do whatever He tells you."
