Daily Affirmation, Mentation Question, Quote, Scripture and Prayer
Read slooowwwly and let the words sink in.
It's up to you to find out how they apply to "your" Life.


How do I feel when someone gets treated a lot better than they deserve?



"You will not be punished 'for' your anger, you will be punished 'by' your anger."




I let go and let God.


For a more enriching experience, go down on your knees to pray or take it one step further and prostrate yourself (lay face down) on the floor while praying.

Father, while today's reading below may be a long one, it is certainly worth the read. There are several examples in today's reading that speak volumes about worry, anguish, sorrow, anger, resentment, mercy and forgiveness. Jesus basically gives us three examples of being disconnected from You.

First He speaks about lost sheep, then He speaks about a woman losing a coin and then He speaks of a lost child. The example of the lost sheep is profound because of the social nature of sheep. They need to band together, not only because there is safety in numbers to protect themselves from predators but because without each other or without a leader, sheep become very needy, confused and neurotic. Sheep need to see another sheep in order feel safe and secure. A lost sheep is bewildered, despondent and sad. The example of the woman who loses one coin in those days would have meant that the woman lost her husband's entire days wage. This could have had devastating effects on their household, especially for the poor. And then there is the example of the lost child (son) who returns home humilitated, repentent and enlightened after struggling through his own bad choices. In all three examples I can see how heartbreak, anguish and sorrow can easily lead to joy and celebration in an instant once the relationship is restored or the lost is found. What is even more heartbreaking is the eldest son in the reading didn't understand how the father felt that his lost son had returned. The father was rejoicing that his son came back, repented and saw the error of his ways. The eldest son allowed himself to fall into jealousy, insecurity and resentment, which eventually led to his own estrangement and isolation from the community.

Father, thank You so much for this awareness of how You must feel when one of Your own return to You. However myself or anyone else has their 'come to Jesus' is probably the way it needs to play out in order to draw closer to You.

Through Jesus Christ's Most Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face. ~Amen


A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke

Luke 15:1-32

1 Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear Him.

2 And the Pharisees and the scribes murmured, saying, "This man receives sinners and eats with them."

3 So He told them this parable:

4 "What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost, until he finds it?

5 And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing.

6 And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, `Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost.'

7 Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.

8 "Or what woman, having ten silver coins, if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp and sweep the house and seek diligently until she finds it?

9 And when she has found it, she calls together her friends and neighbors, saying, `Rejoice with me, for I have found the coin which I had lost.'

10 Just so, I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents."

11 And he said, "There was a man who had two sons;

12 and the younger of them said to his father, `Father, give me the share of property that falls to me.' And he divided his living between them.

13 Not many days later, the younger son gathered all he had and took his journey into a far country, and there he squandered his property in loose living.

14 And when he had spent everything, a great famine arose in that country, and he began to be in want.

15 So he went and joined himself to one of the citizens of that country, who sent him into his fields to feed swine.

16 And he would gladly have fed on the pods that the swine ate; and no one gave him anything.

17 But when he came to himself he said, `How many of my father's hired servants have bread enough and to spare, but I perish here with hunger!

18 I will arise and go to my father, and I will say to him, "Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you;

19 I am no longer worthy to be called your son; treat me as one of your hired servants."'

20 And he arose and came to his father. But while he was yet at a distance, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him.

21 And the son said to him, `Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you; I am no longer worthy to be called your son.'

22 But the father said to his servants, `Bring quickly the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet;

23 and bring the fatted calf and kill it, and let us eat and make merry;

24 for this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found.' And they began to make merry.

25 "Now his elder son was in the field; and as he came and drew near to the house, he heard music and dancing.
