deep is yourr experience of God? Do you know

1Thes 5:1-6 - Ps 128:1-5 - Matt 25:14-30
Some of you are burning with love for God and
therefore, with love for all people. You want to do
great things for the love God and man.
The Lord wants to entrust great things to us, but
we must first be faithful in small matters. If we don't
pray everyday, and are wasting our time by sitting
in front of the TV, why would God choose us to
change our culture of death into a civilization
of love and life? St. Therese, "the Little Flower"
did the little things well. Then, the Lord made her
a Doctor of the Church. she was entrusted with
great things. By love and faithfulness in small
matters, become great.
Monday, November 20 - 1Mac 1:10-15, 41-43,
54-57, 62-63 - Ps 119:53, 61, 134, 150, 155, 158
The blind man asked Jesus "Lord, that I may see!"
He made this request strongly, whether or not he
was aware that restored sight would involve new
demands for him, new responsibilities to family
and friends. After receiving back his sight, he
began to follow Jesus "giving glory to God." His
life now had a new focus, able to see his wife and
children, his friends and surroundings, as treasured
gifts: this shining sun, the palm trees, the birds....
We too should pray for the spiritual sight to see the
world and others as God's blessings. The blind man
was persevering in his prayer driven by his need,
and his petition changed into a prayer of praise.
