    Today's reading is from the Holy Gospel according to St. Luke. (5:1-11)
     
    If we ignore the Christian struggle which is to be quiet, we will be left exhausted, discouraged, and with empty nets. The struggle is real. The toiling and intense laboring is real. We have to keep going. We have to take care of our business. But if we fall short, repent, start over, and come to confession. Ask the Lord for His strength, for His forgiveness, for His help. Pray for God’s guidance. Ask yourself what is most pleasing to God. Watch what kind of peace and happiness comes from this.

    Today's reading is from the Holy Gospel according to St. Mark. (8:34-38; 9:1)
     
    A Christian is one who imitates Christ not just when it convenient but throughout life. 
     
    Prayer:
    Lord, in spite of all my weaknesses, in spite of all my shortcomings, in spite of all my struggles, in spite of all my sinfulness, I love you and I wish to love you better, and I wish to love You more. And as an expression of my love, I try to do Your commandments and Your holy will. I try to do what You want me to do and what You have planned for me in my life. And it depends on You Lord whether you will give me Your salvation and whether You will give me your grace. 
    Amen

    If you think you have done it all, you haven’t finished yet. There is still more to do. Christ came free us, to illuminate our life. Detach yourself from the things that separate you from Christ.

    Today's reading is from the Holy Gospel according to St. Matthew. (18:23-35)
    May we in our love for Christ and our obedience in his simple commandment remove our self-love out of the way and place humility right there in the forefront of our minds and manifest it in our life so we can forgive all the people around us so our heavenly Father can do the same to us.

    Today's reading is from the Holy Gospel according to St. Matthew. (17:214-23)
     
    What we need is fervency. We need more soul in what we say. A little bit of faith and the mountains can move as our Savior said. Do we feel wobbly sometimes? Wobbly with the temptation and chaos of the world? Steady yourselves through fervent prayer. 
     
    Submit Yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
    James (4:7)
