Monday, December 9 : In the obedience of faith
"The Gospel teaches me that growing in wisdom to Joseph, to Marie, Jesus remains submissive... He always obeys his beloved parents." St. Therese of the Child Jesus, Poetry 54
"Jesus said my food is to do the pleasure of him who sent me, and to make his workcomplete" (Jn 4,34)
Following St. Joseph, I am now seeking a small act of obedience to fulfill the loving will of God.
Take a moment to treasure up all these things and ponder them in your heart (cf Luke 2,19)
Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer everyone. Col 4:6
