Daily Prayer & Reading June 19
June 19, 2018
“My Lord, my God, my Love, bring me to love You; this only do I ask, for I know full well that this is everything. Give me Your love! … The past is still present to my mind … but You, O my Savior, do You forget it, and keep in mind only Your mercies.” St. Eugene De Mazenod, O.M.I. founder of the Missionary Oblates
Jesus said to his disciples:
“You have heard that it was said,
You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.
But I say to you, love your enemies
and pray for those who persecute you,
that you may be children of your heavenly Father,
for he makes his sun rise on the bad and the good,
and causes rain to fall on the just and the unjust.
For if you love those who love you, what recompense will you have?
Do not the tax collectors do the same?
And if you greet your brothers only,
what is unusual about that?
Do not the pagans do the same?
So be perfect, just as your heavenly Father is perfect.”
