Daily Reflection for Monday of the 34th Week in Ordinary Time Cycle I
Theme: TRUE SACRIFICE: BEING GENEROUS
By: Sr. J. K. Osiyemi, EJH
Reflection for Monday November 22 2021
The Lord Jesus takes note of my love and sacrifices, just as he did with the poor and generous widow who gave all that she had. Though I should learn to acknowledge even the little kindness and sacrifices of others to me, I should learn not to show case my own little and big acts of charity. What gift from the heart can I offer Jesus today? Do I give generously for Church use? What am I planning today to do with my excesses? Are my clothings and shoes far more than I actually need? Do I still throw away surplus food instead of sharing it with the less priviledged?
LET US PRAY
Dear Jesus, grant me the courage to offer to you all that I am and all that I will ever be. Accept me as I am, and receive all my poor offering, and give me in return an outpouring of spiritual grace and divine favour. May I be rich and generous in counsel and forgiveness. Bless and reward my love and sacrifice. Amen.
