- How much do you relate your Catholicism to what you do (ie rosaries, prayer cards, devotionals, etc.) versus who you are in relation to Christ? What can you do to shift things if they need to be shifted?
- God thirsts for you and for me. Pray some or all of this “I Thirst Prayer” written by Mother Teresa of Calcutta.https://avemariaradio.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/Jesus-I-Thirst.pdf
- Pray over the following Scripture passage, from 1 John 4:8-12Whoever is without love does not know God, for God is love. In this way the love of God was revealed to us: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might have life through him.In this is love: not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as expiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also must love one another. No one has ever seen God. Yet, if we love one another, God remains in us, and his love is brought to perfection in us.
