The Today Show : A Catholic Reflection: "Let's pray, prepare for the future, and not dread it. We should pray to not be subjected to the trial but to stand erect by faith and hold our heads high 'when these things begin to happen' (Lk 21:28). We prepare for the future by using fully the opportunities of the present. We have wasted enough time doing 'what the pagans enjoy' (1 Pt 4:3). We are not to spend what remains of our 'earthly life on human desires but on the will of God' (1 Pt 4:2). 'It is now the hour...to wake from sleep, for our salvation is closer than when we first accepted the faith' (Rm 13:11).
PRAYER: Father, today is the only day I'm certain I have left. I live my life and day fully for You.
PROMISE: 'For she [wisdom] is the refulgence of eternal light, the spotless mirror of the power of God, the image of His goodness.' –Wis 7:26
PRAISE: St. Albert spent his days learning about God through both natural and supernatural revelations. "
