Thursday of the Second Week of Easter
Readings of the day: RB 58:17-29Mass: Ac 5:27-33; Resp Ps 34; Jn 3:31-36

WE MUST OBEY GOD.
My dear God, I am impressed with how much I have to be thankful for in a material sense; and in a spiritual sense I have the opportunity of being even more fortunate. But it seems to me that I am not translating this opportunity into fact. You say, dear God, to ask for grace and it will be given. I ask for it. I realize that there is more to it than that—that I have to behave like I want it. ‘Not those who say, Lord, Lord, but those who do the will of my Father.’ Please help me to know the will of my Father—not a scrupulous nervousness nor yet a lax presumption but a clear, reasonable knowledge; and after this give me a strong Will to be able to bend it to the Will of the Father (F. O’Connor, A Prayer Journal, p. 5).
BEHOLD, I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS,EVEN TO THE END OF THE AGE,ALLELUIA.(Communion Antiphon, Mass)
