Wednesday of the Thirty-Fourth, or Last, Week in Ordinary Time
Readings of the day: RB 48:22-25Mass: Daniel 5:1-6, 13-14, 16-17, 23-28; Resp. Psalm (Dn 3); Luke 21:12-19
By your perseverance you will secure your lives.


When I first entered monastic life, a sister said she would pray for my perseverance. No one had ever said that to me before. I could not figure out why on earth she would pray for such a thing. Now I know what dear Sr Philomena was talking about. It is the daily pinpricks and contradictions that make us want to run and hide, is it not?
Loving God,grant us the grace to persevere as we journey to you.
