Build your house on rock
When I read the Gospel for this Sunday, I think of the story of the Three Little Pigs and the wolf who came and huffed and puffed until he blew the house down. We need to construct our spiritual houses with a solid foundation of prayer and build on this with humility and strong virtue so our house is not built on sand and will not wash away when adversity comes.
I read an article in today's paper on the stress that is taking its toil on all of us in the world today. We need to be aware and stay calm and know that it is in our power to lessen the stress in our lives. Each must find the best way to do this as we relax in different ways. Prayer helps us to see how the Lord is showing us ways to alleviate stress and enjoy each day as a gift.
