Our present light afflictions, which are for the moment, are achieving for us an eternal glory that is beyond all measure.  – 2 Cor 4:17

Reflection. The secret to sanctity and happiness rests in our fidelity to the duty of the present moment.  – Jean Pierre de Caussaude

The will to bear discomfort in fulfilling that duty is the very basis of good character.

Prayer. Dear Jesus, help me to stay focused on the present moment, as I offer You all my joys and sufferings.
