WE ARE SHAPED BY OUR BELIEFS
?O woman, great is your faith! Be it done for you as you desire.? ? Matthew 15:28
Lord, I open my life to the wealth of blessings in the universe. I open my life to the abundance that You wish to pour into my life!
P S A L M
10 Hear the word of the LORD, O nations, proclaim it on distant isles, and say: He who scattered Israel, now gathers them together, he guards them as a shepherd his flock. (R) 11 The LORD shall ransom Jacob, he shall redeem him from the hand of his conqueror. 12 Shouting, they shall mount the heights of Zion, they shall come streaming to the LORD?s blessings. (R) 13 Then the virgins shall make merry and dance, and young men and old as well. I will turn their mourning into joy, I will console and gladden them after their sorrows. (R)
G O S P E L
Jesus usually looks for faith in those who come seeking something from Him. He is always disposed to give them what they request if they ask with faith. Desire is not enough. It is faith that can move mountains. Let us seek to grow in faith and trust in the Lord?s promises to us. As the desires of our hearts come into greater conformity with His desires for us, we will discover that the Lord will give us what we really want.

NO ONE EXCLUDED
Nancy Astor, though born in the United States, was the first woman to belong to the British House of Commons in 1919. Majority of the British parliament were hostile to her. The reason for this unfriendly attitude was not her being an American but her regularly interrupting other speakers. It was her way of making her presence felt in the House. She always had something to say, especially on issues involving women?s rights. Once rebuked for her unceasing interventions, she objected saying, ?But I have been listening for hours before interrupting!? A fellow legislator whispered to her, ?Yes, Nancy, we have all heard you listening.?
Father of us all, believers and unbelievers, forgive us for shoving others from the reach of Your love. Forgive us for looking down on others outside our fold. Forgive us for making them feel that they are ?outsiders? and have no right to gain access to You. Have mercy on us and make us one. Amen.
St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, martyr, pray for us.
