Thought for today:
Its easy to think that people are holier than us. Its easy to look at popular Catholic speakers, priests, and sisters and say “I’ll never have a relationship with God like that, they understand things I don’t, or they’ve had life experiences that I can’t have. ” On one hand, that’s true — you won’t have the same experience of God as others. But that doesn’t mean God wants you any less! He is actively using your life to call you closer to Him! Your journey of holiness is going to look different from others, but the end goal for everyone will be the same: eternal life with Him!
Action for today:
Write down a list of saints, and prominent Catholic figures that inspire you. What do they have in common? What do you admire about them? Instead of looking at these people as unattainable models of holiness, learn from their example. Let their lives inspire you to live more faithfully. Maybe add a new daily devotion modeled after a saint you love, or find new ways to serve the people around you, as the Catholic speakers motivate you to! Let the Holy Spirit show you what you need to know about God through these holy people, and then let Him activate it in your life!
Prayer for today:
Holy Spirit, come into my heart. Fill me with the fire of Your love!
