Assumption-Florian Parish Bulletin September 26, 2020

"Do nothing out of selfishness; rather, humbly regard others as more important than yourselves..." (Philippians 2:3) Pride and ego are hard things to control. We see how others act or dress and think we are superior to them. We idolize our own self-image. But, if we truly believe everything is a gift from God, we recognize all the people that God has put into our lives as gifts! We are grateful for how they enrich our lives. Pray every day for the people in your life: your family, your friends, and those who make you angry.

Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility regard others as better than yourselves.  Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others.  (Philippians 2:3-4)

Ponder: When do I act from selfish ambition or conceit?

Prayer: Lord, I am grateful for your example of humble service toward others.  Help me to be a humble and loving person toward all people.

Practice: With a grateful heart I will serve others' needs before my own.

After this the Lord appointed seventy others and sent them on ahead of him in pairs to every town and place where he himself intended to go.  He said to them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore ask the lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest."  (Luke 10:1-2)

Ponder: What does it mean to be a Christian in the World?

Prayer: Lord, I am grateful for your life and ministry. Help me to be more faithful in doing God's work.

Practice: With a grateful heart I will get involved in a worthy cause.

[Jesus said to them] "Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people that produces the fruits of the kingdom."  (Matthew 22:43)

Ponder: What fruits do I cultivate with my words, actions, and behaviors?

Prayer: Lord, I am grateful for your vineyard of love.  Remove my shortcomings that I may cultivate your gifts of compassion and peace.

Practice: With a grateful heart I will bring healing to a divisive situation.

Do Something Beautiful for God - The Essential Teachings of Mother Teresa


September 25 - No matter how tired you are, no matter how physically exhausting your life may be, make it a priority to care for someone in need.  What greater joy can there be?

September 26 -  I believe God loves the world through us-through you and me.

September 27 - God created us to love and be loved, and so we hunger for chances to love and be loved.  The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.

September 28 - Everything starts with prayer.  Everything good thing we do flows from prayer.  Ask God to fill you with His love so you can take His love out into the world and share it with others.  We talk about prayer at church, but are we praying?  It is easy to talk about the poor, but talking about the poor is not the same as talking to the poor. It is  easy to talk about prayer, but talking about prayer is not the same as sitting down in a quiet place and talking to God.

September 29 - Living a Christian life provides for the growth of faith. There have been many saints who have gone before to guide us, but I like the ones who are simple, like St. Therese of Lisieux. I chose her as my namesake because she did ordinary things with extraordinary love.

September 30 - Death is the most decisive moment in human life.  It is like our coronation: to die in peace with God.

October 1 - If we really want to love, we must learn to forgive.
