Be on your guard lest your hearts be weighed down by carousing and drunkenness and the anxieties of this life.  – Lk 21:34

Reflection.  You are a precious creation of the Lord.  Follow the blueprint of your maker, and do not give in to your base desires.  You must control your thoughts and desires if you are to find joy.

Prayer.  Lord, help me to control my unholy yearnings, even if it hurts.
