Friend, Go Up Higher
Luke 14:1, 7-11 Saturday of the Thirtieth Week in Ordinry Time Today, I will perform some act of service for another person, preferably for someone close to me, preferably without their notice. These are the acts that most deeply express love. Remember, if you expect something in return, even just thanks, it isn't love, it's business.

I Hold the Keys to the Gates of Purgatory
Today I will make a sacrifice for my loved ones in purgatory

Winning the Only Contest that Matters
Matthew 5:1-12a Saturday of the Thirtieth Week in Ordinary Time I will spend at least five minutes today imagining what heaven will be like. What would I like heaven to be like? Jesus is setting up a mansion there for me. He is going to put everything that he can in it to please me and make me happy. Spend some time imagining what he would put there to surprise and delight me. He will go far beyond my wildest imaginations, but by dedicating some time to this today, I will increase my desire for heaven and to make the sacrifices necessary to get there.

Up Against the Narrow Gate
Luke 13:22-30 Wednesday of the Thirtieth Week in Ordinry Time Today I will examine my conscience very honestly to see if I am saying to Jesus in any aspect of my life and to see if I am letting myself get too comfortable in any aspect of my life, since comfort, especially in the spiritual life, is a sign that I am not striving to enter by the narrow gate.

The Kingdom of Heaven Infiltrates and Enriches Everything It Touches
Luke 13:18-21 Tuesday of the Thirtieth Week in Ordinry Time I will try to be more optimistic about the Church in society, seeing how it has influenced so much of what is best in our society ń love for the poor, love for enemies etc. Knowing that it is inspired by the Holy Spirit, I will accept that as it has happened so many times in the past, just when things look bleakest for the Church, God turns the tables, and it enters into another Golden Age. Didn't John Paul II predict that we were just launching out into the New Age of Evangelization?

Jesus Blows me Out of my Comfort Zone, Again!
Luke 13: 10-17 Monday of the Thirtieth Week in Ordinary Time Where in my life have I settled into spiritual routine and old age? Do I habitually skip some prayer I should be saying, telling myself it isn't that important? I will make an extra effort to pray it today. Is there some other aspect of my spiritual or moral life that I have removed to make life more comfortable for me? Time to start doing it again!

The Gentle Mercy of God
I will pray with perseverance and trust

The Fig That Was Almost Toast!
Luke 13:1-9 I will exercise patience today with everyone I meet, thinking of the patience that God has had with me.

Spiritual Weather Reports
Luke 12:54-59 Friday of the Twenty-ninth Week in Ordinary Time I will try to be prompt in following the inspirations of the Holy Spirit.

Jesus Fire Must Be My Own
Luke 12:49-53 Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time I will strive to set a good spiritual example for my family and will invite someone who has strayed to consider coming back.

It is So Hard to Get Good Help
Luke 12:39-48 Wednesday of the Twenty-ninth Week in Ordinary Time When my patience is tested, I will pause and ask myself, How does the Lord want me to handle this situation?

Spiritual Readiness
Luke 12: 35-38 Tuesday of the Twenty-ninth Week in Ordinary Time I will review my life choices to make sure that I am persevering in all that I have promised Christ.

Bigger Barns?
Luke 12: 13-21 Monday of the Twenty-ninth Week in Ordinary Time I will live charity today as fervently as if I knew this day were my last.

To Serve Is to Reign
Mark 10:35-45 Twenty-ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time I will perform a hidden act of charity for someone whom I find bothersome.
