“Let us see whether his words be true; let us find out what will happen to him.”Wisdom 2:17 (full readings)

Rosemary’s Reflections: In college, I ran the steeplechase race during the outdoor track season. The race is eight laps (2 miles) with four barriers to hurdle over around the track and one in front of a water pit. It’s a grueling race, so any support from the sidelines was much appreciated. The water pit was always a popular spot for fans and photographers to gather–not only is it the most exciting part, but it’s the best place to watch runners fall into the water. As much as I wanted to put it out of my mind, I couldn’t help but wonder how many people were waiting for me to take a wrong step. But when it did happen, I realized I kept my eyes ahead and got back on my feet. As Christians, we seem to be put under a lot of scutiny. People can be very critical about your belief and may put you to the test. The Pharisees tried to trick Jesus into tripping over His words. But Jesus stayed confident and focused.  We all make mistakes and thanks be to God He is forgiving. Although the road ahead may be hard, we must lead by example, in success and failure.

Faith Challenge: The Catholic Church and the pro-life movement has been in the political crosshairs a lot this year. When others scoff at your beliefs, smile and offer to answer any questions they may have. Fight the fires of hate and ignorance with the Holy Spirit’s flame of wisdom and knowledge.

Faith Quote: “Having a true faith is the most difficult thing in the world. Many will try to take it from you.”~ Steve Prefontaine
Through Christ Our Lord,

* Pray/Fast: Prayer connects us with God’s will & His miracles, changing us & helping others. Fast from things that take your eyes off Jesus. Those who pray together stay together, and close to God!
* Save Unborn (& family): Abortion reality (images)…#1 death cause (22% pregnancies). Prov 24:11 & Jer 1:5. “A great poverty that a child must die that you might live as you wish.” Mother Teresa.
* Evangelize: Make room for unbelievers & re-evangelization of self, by way of prayer (relationship) and following Christ’s example of love (service/sacrifice/mercy). Mt 28:19.
