It is not the healthy who need a physician, but rather those who are sick.  I have come to call not the righteous but sinners.  – Mk 2:17

Reflection. Do not worry if you are not particularly joyful on any given day.  Perhaps you think you are not worthy.  Nonsense!  When you think about the bad things you have done in the past, it has a purifying effect.  You become purer and humbler by a spirit of penance.  However, you must also learn to let go of it.  Turn the past over to God’s mercy.

Prayer. Lord, You help me to see myself as I am.  I know You want me to be a joyful person.  Refresh my drooping spirit.
