Daily Thoughts and Prayers


May 24th



Salient Thought for the Day


      Do everything humbly and without ostentation. Ambition kills spirituality.


Lines to Memorize


      The dark walls of night stood before me as if in grim defiance, barring my vision.

      I searched for light but the face of the dark was ever before me.

      "Light! Light! My soul cries for light!

      Help me to find the light!"




      If sin or persecution leads us to humility, we should bless it; thus it is that saintly people bless their enemies. Even though we may feel the hurt, there comes a deep mellow feeling and we bless those who hurt us. Blows and wounds drive us to God. Life means struggle. God sends his hardships as a blessing, that we may unfold. When there comes real ripening, it makes us mellow, gentle and enduring.




      O Supreme One, open my heart to Your blessing.

      Plant in it the seed of spiritual fruition;

      Take from it all pride and ambition,

      And keep it simple and free from vanity.

      Quicken in me higher desires.

      May I feel the closeness of Your Presence, as I fulfill my daily tasks.
