Daily Reflection

  • Raw Expression
    Posted by Franciscan Media on March 24, 2017 at 10:00 am

    Fasting is not an end in itself but instead is, like prayer and the works of mercy, an expression of who we are before God and in relation to others. Fasting should make us generous, not self-righteous. Lord Jesus, show me the difference between what I truly need and what I may simply want. -from Peace and Good       &nbs […]

Saint of the Day
  • Blessed Oscar Arnulfo Romero

    Image: Blessed Oscar Romero at the Trevi Fountain in Rome, 1977 | Archdiocese of San Salvador Blessed Oscar Arnulfo Romero Saint of the Day for March 24 (August 15, 1917  – March 24, 1980) https://www.franciscanmedia.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/SODMar24.mp3  Blessed Oscar Romero’s Story The night before he was murdered while celebrating Mass, Archbishop Oscar Romero of San Salvador said on the radio: “I would like to appeal in a special way to the men of the army, and in particular to the troops of the National Guard, the police, and the garrisons. Brothers, you belong to our own people. You kill your own brother peasants; and in the face of an order to kill that is given by a man, the law of God that says ‘Do not kill!’ should prevail. “No soldier is obliged to obey an order counter to the law of God. No one has to comply with an immoral law. It is the time now that you recover your conscience and obey its dictates rather than the […]

    Lord,
    May this candle be a light for you to enlighten me in my difficulties.
    May it be a fire for you to burn out of me all pride, selfishness and impurity.
    May it be a flame for you to bring warmth into my heart, towards my family, my neighbors and all those who meet me.
    Through the prayers of Mary Virgin and Mother, I place in your care those I came to pray for, especially_____.
    I cannot stay long with you in this church. In leaving this candle, I wish to give to you something of myself.
    Help me to continue my prayer into everything I do this day. Amen.

    • Are you frustrated, hurt or angry with your spouse?
    • Are you constantly fighting?
    • Have you thought about separation or divorce?
    • Does talking about it only make it worse?
    There are 4 Stages of Marriage: (1) Romance (2) Disillusionment
    (3) Misery, and (4) Awakening.
    Due to the high divorce rate many couples never make it to the 4th Stage of Awakening
