Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you and utter all kinds of calumnies against you for My sake.  – Mt 5:11

Reflection.  Jesus knows when you are hurt, ridiculed, or abandoned because of your faith in Him.  Rejoice and be glad if it happens to you, because they did the same thing to Jesus.  The servant cannot be greater than the master.

Prayer.  Jesus, help me to be meek and humble of heart.
