Daily Prayer: The faithful can achieve nothing in this world so long as they are reliant
Thursday of the Fourth Week in Ordinary Time
The faithful can achieve nothing in this world so long as they are reliant upon its petty pleasures. Only when we possess nothing and want for nothing will we be able to emulate your apostles, Lord, who in poverty and hunger were able to vanquish demons and heal the sick. Humble our hearts Lord, so that we might go into the wider world to perform your holy work. Amen.
Hebrews 12:18-19, 21-24
Psalms 48:2-3AB, 3CD-4, 9, 10-11
