Feast of St. Joseph
Today is the Feast of St. Joseph. He is the silent saint, but what a powerful one! He was so attentive to the voice of God that spoke to him when he was sleeping. He must have had great faith to believe that God was speaking to him and to obey God without any hesitation. Let us ask Joseph today to make us attentive to the voice of God.
I want to share something that was used in our Community prayer. It is called
Kindling the Fire:
This morning, as I kindle the fire upon my hearth, I pray that the flame of God's love may burn in my heart, and the hearts of all I meet today. I pray that no envy and malice, no hatred or fear, may smother the flame. I pray that indifference and apathy, contempt and pride, may not pour like cold water on the fire.
Instead, may the spark of God's love light the love in my heart, that it may burn brightly through the day. And may I warm those that are lonely, whose hearts are cold and lifeless, so that all may know the comfort of God's love.
