Prayer of the Day

Feast of St. Charles Borromeo, Bishop

November 4th, 2016
"The Master commended the unjust steward ‘s astuteness, for worldly people are more astute in dealing with their own kind than are the children of light. " Luke 16 : 8
Caroline C

This Gospel is rather difficult; it deals with the mis-use of power, prestige and “tainted” money, to get out of difficult circumstances and achieve selfish ends. The Lukan Jesus commends the steward’s strategy,( but not his actions), and encourages us to use the means at our disposal to further His ends and plans for our happiness in this world and the next. We need God’s wisdom to succeed.

Prayer

Lord in all we do may we have your blessing and your plan for us in mind. Help us to use the means at our disposal and our many talents to serve You in this world. Amen
