Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures
Tuesday of the Twenty Eighth Week of Ordinary Time
Not Ashamed Of The Gospel
Jesus: “Do you see how much I love you? I reward your perseverance to do good and convert it into blessing for My work of Redemption. I need your sacrifices so you ceaselessly give momentum to our messages and offer reparation to My offended Sacred Heart. (September 18, 1965).
Today’s Readings: Brothers and sisters: I am not ashamed of the Gospel. It is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes. (Romans 1)
Prayer Meditation- Lord, today it seems so many are ashamed of the Gospel. We do not acknowledge, You Our Creator and have given into vain reasoning which has darkened our minds (Romans 1). We have become self -reliant and we think we can define all sorts of things it seems- we believe in no one but ourselves and our intellects. Even Christians live a subtle atheism- listening to one thing on Sunday and living in the world the rest of the week. We seem to want to hide our light under a bushel (Matthew 5:15) not willing to show that hope that lives in all of us (1 Peter 3:15) and yet You have asked us to be in the world but not of it (John 15). A people set apart. Lord let us be persevering in prayer and in doing good, ceaselessly offering the sacrifices of our daily life for Your Glory and to save souls. Let us not be ashamed of the Gospel but let us live it loudly each day for all to see even if we do not say a word!
