Those who wish to be My disciples must deny themselves, take up their cross daily, and follow Me.  – Lk 9:23

Reflection. The things that are going badly, are the work of the devil, and that is why I prefer you not to have too many scruples about your sins.  Think of them only so as to see God’s forgiveness.  – Archbishop de Provencheres

Prayer. Dear Lord, raise me up, and give me courage that I may carry my cross bravely.
