What shall I render to the Lord for all He has given me?  I will take the chalice of salvation and call upon the Name of the Lord.

Reflection. Why not give the Lord a loving heart?  St. Peter, quoting the Book of Proverbs, says, “Love covers a multitude of sins” (1 Pet 4:8).  Love conquers all.  Sinful persons reject God’s love and say:  “I’ll do it my way!”  But if they repent and turn their lives around, they win His favor.

Prayer. Lord, at Mass each day I unite spiritually with Jesus as He offers Himself to the Father.
