1st DAY
God speaks in the silence of the heart, and we listen. And then we speak to God from the fullness of our hearts, and God listens. And this listening and this speaking is what prayer is meant to be: oneness with God, oneness with Jesus.
2nd DAY
The fruit of Silence is Prayer. The fruit of Prayer is Faith. The fruit of Faith is Love The fruit of Love is Service. The fruit of Service is Peace.
3rd DAY
Faith in action through prayer, faith in action through service: each is the same thing, the same love, the same compassion. This is something that should encourage us and should be a strength for us, that we complete each other more fully.
4th DAY
The mission of proclaiming Christ, through action or through words, is one mission, the mission of love and compassion.
5th DAY
We could know all possible knowledge, and all of theology and all the things about God, but we would not be able to light a fire in the hearts of the people. We could just be uttering words, not living thos words. That is why it is necessary for us that our words be the fruit of our life, the fruit of our prayers.
6th DAY
It is very important that right from the beginning we simply live the gospel. Live the gospel in prayer; live the gospel in words. You won't be able to give what you don't have.
7th DAY
You are to be that presence of Christ to each other. Love each other tenderly as Jesus loves each one of you. Tender love for each other speaks much louder than all the words you can say. Love until it hurts; it takes deep sacrifice to proclaim the word of God.
8th DAY
Christ must be the light that shines through you, and the people looking at you must see only Jesus. You have a challenge from Jesus to meet: he has shed the light, and you will take his light and lighten every heart you meet.
9th DAY
There is a great humility in God. He can stoop down to people like us and become dependent on us for his work to live, to grow, to bear fruit. And he could easily have done it without us. Yet he stooped down and called us to do it. Jesus said, "Learn of me for I am meek and humble of heart.
10th DAY
Holiness is the greatest gift that God can give us because for that reason he created us.
11th DAY
Whatever you do, even if you help somebody cross the road, you do it to Jesus. Even if you give somebody a glass of water, you do it to Jesus. Such a simple little teaching, but it is so important.
12th DAY
His love for us led Christ to Gethsemane and to Calvary.
13th DAY
Jesus is the Light. Jesus is the Truth. Jesus is the Life. We too must be: the Light of Charity, the Truth of Humility, the Life of Sanctity.
14th DAY
Jesus came to earth to give charity its rightful place in the hearts of men. "By this," he said, "men shall know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another." This commandment will last for all eternity. True love for our neighbor is to wish him well and to do good to him.
15th DAY
We need to be someone for the naked who not only lack clothing but mercy. We need to be someone for the destitude who not only lack a roof over their heads, but who are deprived of having someone who cares, someone to belong to.
16th DAY
God loves people and provides for them. They are more important to him than the lilies of the field and the sparrows.
17th DAY
People who are unloved and unwanted are, just like us, children of God. Even more, they are Christ in our midst and they belong to us. They are our brothers and sisters.
18th DAY
God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son. Jesus said, "As the Father has loved me, so I have you." The Father love, the Son's love, and our love is but a giving until it hurts.
19th DAY
Jesus loved and still loves the unwanted and unloved. He loves them deeply. He died for them, and he doesn't stop saying: "Love one another as I have loved you. As the Father loves me, love one another."
20th DAY
Jesus, you have given everything, life, blood, all. Now it is my turn. I put everything into the field also. The common soldier fights in the ordinary lines, but the devoted one tried to be near the captain to share his fate. This is the spirit of Christ.
21st DAY
The humbler the work, the greater should be your love and efficiency. Be not afraid of the life of sacrifice.
22nd DAY
We stand before the world as ambassadors of peace by preaching the message of love in action that crosses all barriers of nationality, creed, or country.
23rd DAY
Make us worthy, Lord, to serve our brothers and sisters scattered throughout the entire world, who live and die in poverty and hunger. Through the service of our hands, give them thier daily bread; and by our understanding love, give them peace and joy.
24th DAY
We all long for heaven where God is, but we have it in our power to be in heaven with him right now, to be happy with him this moment. But being happy with him now means loving as he loves, helping as he helps, giving as he gives, serving as he serves, rescuing as he rescues and being with him twenty-four hours a day.
25th DAY
Jesus could have died as a king and he could have risen from from the dead as a king. He chose poverty because he knew an his infinite knowledge and wisdom that it is the real means of possesssing God, of bringing his love down to this earth.
26th DAY
Don't search for Jesus in for lands, he is not there. He is close to you; he is with you. Just keep the lamp burning and you will always see him. Keep on filling the lamp with all these little drops of love, and you will see how sweet is the Lord you love.
27th DAY
What is important is that you are holding on, that you have got a grip on Christ and he will not let your hand go.
28th DAY
Jesus is going to do great things with you if you let him. We interfere with his plans when we push in someone or something else not suitable for us. Anything that takes you away from God must remain outside of you.
29th DAY
Be faithful in little things, for in them our strength lies. To the good God, nothing is little, because he is so great. But we are so small. That is why God stoops down and takes the trouble to make little things for us to do, to give us a chance to prove our love for him. Because he makes them, they are very great.
30th DAY
Be faithful in little practices of love which will build in you the life of holiness and make you Christlike.
