I do not understand my own actions.  For I do not do the good things that I want to do; rather, I do the bad things that I do not want to do.  – Rom 7:15

Reflection. St. Paul admitted he was weak.  His own behavior often baffled him.  Isn’t this true for all of us?  What a joy it is to know that even the great Saints of the Church were human.

Prayer. Dear Lord, help me to see the whole picture.  Do not let me be too hard on myself.  I trust in Your mercy and love.  Whether I understand myself or not, You are there, preparing me for the banquet.
