WITH JESUS IN THE MORNING
Today you are invited to share Jesus' mission of compassion to those whom you encounter. Graciously receive this privilege. "The Son of Man has authority to forgive sins on earth” (Mk 2:10). Forgiveness is power, the greatest one of all, especially when we do not even ask for it. "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do." Jesus invites you to join his goal of forgiving like you have been forgiven. Discuss this with the Lord and tihnk of those who desire forgiveness today. Offer up your day for the monthly intention.

WITH JESUS DURING THE DAY
Take some space this afternoon to pray and become aware that you are trusting in a power that is oftentimes hidden, the power to forgive that God trusts to you to constantly use. "When God forgives us, He forgets all the bad we have done... God loses the memory of the bad stories of all sinners, of our sins. He forgives us and continues on. He only asks of us: Do the same: learn to forgive" (Pope Francis). Is there someone relegated to the outer edges of your heart? Ask the Lord to use this power constantly. Before continuing on with your day, pray for those who suffer religious discrimination and persecution.
WITH JESUS IN THE NIGHT
Regain your strenght in the silence of the evening and thank God for the love that He freely gives through those who love you. Allow the people who left their mark on you today to return to your mind. Did you have any difficulties? Was there someone who is particularly difficult for you? What feelings arise in you? Ask for the ability to accept and wlecome others just as the Father does. Entrust tomorrow to the Lord now so that you receive the renewed grace of his mercy with those around you. Pray for the monthly intention. Hail Mary...
