Weekly Devotion – October 24thOur reflection from the readings this week is:

“For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”

In the parable, Jesus contrasts the Pharisee with the tax collector. The Pharisee placed himself above others in prayer and bragged about his piety. The tax collector humbled himself before God and begged for mercy. He sought God with humility rather than with pride. Christ teaches us to act with humility and recognize our own faults. God does not want us to put ourselves above others.

We pray together: St. Jude, help me practice humility in my life. May I seek God with a humble heart.

Please have him take away any resentment, frustration, bitterness, or anger my boyfriend may feel towards are relationship.

Please work with God to bring us to marriage and a loving and caring relationship.

    Dearest St.Jude, please bless my son, myself, family members, friends and associates with strong, stable friendships, relationships & love, with a sense of purpose and success in our endeavours. Let us grow in mindfullness and gratitude for that which we do have – healthy air, clean water, a roof over our heads, nutritious food, our physical & mental abilities & natural talents, someone who cares about us, the ability to forgive & help others, the ability to make informed choices & hope. May we never take these things for granted & always be grateful – mindful that these are our gifts & that we have an opportunity to reach out and help others. I too often take these gifts for granted, help me to always be mindful, grateful and generous in thought & action. Amen.
