The Lord … answered me; He set me free from all my fears.  – Ps 34:5

Reflection.  The Supreme Law is: “Love God, and love your neighbor as you love yourself.”  This law can be reduced to three simple requirements:  cling to God, think of others, and don’t put yourself down.  Catch yourself when you begin putting yourself down, and try to become your own best friend.

Prayer.  Dear God, help me to be kind, above all to myself.
