Learn to do good. Make justice your aim: redress the wronged, hear the orphan’s plea, defend the widow. Isaiah 1:17
Living Faith Devotion snippets: “Think about places, personal or global, where there is injustice, where people are being wronged, situations nearly too painful to think about. Consider a letter or conversation [etc] that could improve one or another of these situations. Do something for someone who has no one [how about the unborn?].” by Fr. James Krings
Sr. Francelle Devotion snippets: “Dearest Ones, God has entrusted to each of us a share in saving the world. We’re co-workers with Jesus [1 Cor 3:6-9]. Regardless of what we do, nothing is too small to offer to God for the salvation of souls. Very young children can be taught to offer up the things they don’t like and the things they do like for others. Suffering accepted becomes a mighty weapon to save souls [and grows deeper personal humility that brings us closer to God]. Jesus did His greatest work, saving us, while hanging on the cross. Whether we are suffering from sickness, loneliness, an unpleasant person to work with or a disagreeable family member, God can turn it into gold, if only we offer it to Him [as a prayer for others]. Make sure not to waste any suffering. All my love and prayers.”
