Life is meant to be shared, not only with people but also with God. This, I think, is what prayer is. It is not begging God to give us things, no matter how much they might benefit us. It is giving ourselves to God and allowing God to give Himself to us.

We are often told that we live in an uncaring world. It is hard to argue with that! For some people, life is like a daily crucifixion. They never get off the cross. The only thing they ever experience is abuse and rejection. Unless we make kindness a way of life, we may never experience how our acts of kindness could, and very often, do make a huge difference in someone’s life, and perhaps it may be the only sign that there is someone who loves them.

Every time that a priest consecrates the bread and wine into Christ’s actual body and blood, a miracle occurs! The bread and wine are changed into the body, blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus. What still remains are the appearances of bread and wine. The reason why is obvious.

If we think we are of little value because we have so many faults, shortcomings, imperfections, or sins, we need to remember that God loves us anyway, and so, we need to stop looking down on ourselves.
