Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
Every time I sink time and energy into prideful pursuits, passions or passtimes, or turn away from prayer and the celebration of sacraments I am (like Peter, Judas or the other disciples) disloyal to Christ. When I turn my back on the despised, the lonely or the needy women, men or children at my door or fly by them in the midst of the hurries of life, I am being disloyal to Jesus' life growing in me. Today, how am I turning away from Christ or grieving the Holy Spirit? How can I turn back again to follow my Lord and my Master?
Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength, and love your neighbor as yourself. (Mark 12)
