WITH JESUS IN THE MORNING
Breathe deeply, give thanks, and open yourself to prayer. Jesus goes before you in this new day; he opens up the path to following him.

WITH JESUS DURING THE DAY
Rest for a brief moment. Jesus challenges you this afternoon with a question: Do you believe that itis possible for a traitor to become a friend?

Close your eyes and concentrate on His gaze upon you, upon all those around you, and upon the world. Ask for His eyes to see that He sees when you look upon another. Before continuing with your day, pray that those persecuted for their religion may have their dignity respected.
WITH JESUS IN THE NIGHT
Close out your day. Ask the Lord for the light to reflect on how you have experienced today. Appreciate any special graces that He conferred upon you. How were your actions of welcome and friendship with the people you encountered. Recall your words and attitudes. Remember that you are invited to live how Jesus did. Ask forgiveness for actions which Jesus may have done differently in your place. Take heart for tomorrow! Hail Mary...
