One Minute Reflection – 24 February – The Memorial of Blessed Thomas Mary Fusco (1831-1891) and Saturday of the First Week of Lent, Year B
…”for he causes his sun to rise upon the bad as well as the good and sends down rain to fall on the upright and the wicked alike.“…Matthew 5:45 (Today’s Gospel Matthew 5:43-48)
REFLECTION – “May work and suffering for God always be your glory and in your work and suffering, may God be your consolation on this earth and your recompense in heaven.”……………..Bl Thomas Mary Fusco
PRAYER– O Lord my God, give me the strength to endure with patience the sufferings I encounter in my life. Teach me to do my daily work for You alone and to do more than that in every way I can, for your greater glory. Teach me, Holy Father, to obey the words of Your Son, to pray for those who persecute me and to suffer for the glory of the Kingdom. Blessed Thomas Mary Fusco, pray that we may achieve the crown of glory in heaven, amen.
