WORD of the DAY

Go on your way; behold, I am sending you like lambs among wolves. Carry no money bag, no sack, no sandals; and greet no one along the way. Into whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace to this household.’ If a peaceful person lives there, your peace will rest on him; but if not, it will return to you. (Luke 10: 3-5)

How shall I live this Word?

It is important to understand how liberating this teaching of Jesus is. It frees us from too much concern regarding our material life. It is not that we have to disdain it, but it is a matter of giving priority to what is essential.

Lord, help me to do without too many accessories. I am what I am, ordered to that inner (and external) freedom through which my life can take priority care of the works of my Lord.

THE VOICE OF Abbot Moses, Desert Father
If action does not coincide with prayer, we labor in vain.
