Thought for Meditation

“Our deepest freedom rests not in our freedom to do what we want to do but rather in our freedom to become who God wills us to be. This person, this ultimate self-God wills us to be, is not a predetermined, static mold to which we must conform. Rather, it is an infinite possibility of growth. It is our true self; that is, a secret self-hidden in and one with the divine freedom. In obeying God, in turning to do God’s will, God wills us to be free. God created us for freedom; that is to say, God created us for God’s self.”  Franciscan Priest Richard Rohr August 2017

Household Prayer: Morning

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me bless God’s holy name.  Bless the Lord, O my soul, and do not forget all God’s benefits.  Amen

Household Prayer: Evening

Healing God, you long to set me free from bondage so that I may serve you in perfect freedom: forgive the ways in which I have been unable to stand in your freedom this day, and strengthen me this night that in the morning I may arise in the support and goodness of your love.  Amen.
