Daily Reflection


Lord Jesus, we pray that our lives may be governed by love always

The true spirit behind the Sabbath was to continue doing that which is good for others. In the Gospel, Jesus invites us to return to the true inner spirit behind all of our spiritual practices and not get stuck with outward practices.


Lord, may I rejoice in Your presence

We too need to remember that Jesus is with us and not to get caught up in a lot of negative thinking or unhelpful forms of spirituality.


Lord, transform my heart and mind

God’s plans far surpass anything that we can dream or imagine. The redemption of Israel was not enough for God — he planned to send the Suffering Servant to redeem the nations too.
