Take everything that happens as coming from the hands of God, who loves you; in this way every trial will become a source of peace and joy since God is not a burden, but rather comfort, joy and cheerfulness. St. Paul of the Cross



morning Morning

Lord, teach us to number our days aright,
that we may gain wisdom of heart . . . Psalm 90

Help us do today the things that matter,
not to waste the time we have.

Yes, the moments we have are precious, Lord,
see that we count them dear.
Teach us to number our days aright.
Fill us this day with your kindness,
that we may be glad and rejoice all the days of our life.

Glory to the Father. . .

Reading

What we await are new heavens and a new earth where, according to his promise, the justice of God will reside. So, beloved, while waiting for this, make every effort to be found without stain or defilement, and at peace in his sight. Consider that our Lord's patience is directed toward salvation. 2 Peter 3:13-15a

Intercessions

Christ, our Guide, grant that today we may follow what you command,
--we humbly ask you.
Christ, our Guide, grant that today your life may grow within us,
--we humbly ask you.
Christ, our Guide, grant that today we may live in peace,
--we humbly ask you.
Christ, our Guide, grant that today we may not fall into sin,
--we humbly ask you.

eveningEvening

Lord, as this day ends,
soul and body, I am tired.
And all I have done:
is it worthwhile?
I need you, Lord,
where can I turn, except to you?

O Lord, my heart is not proud, nor are my eyes haughty;
I busy not myself with great things too sublime for me.
Nay rather, I have stilled and quieted my soul like a weaned child.
Like a weaned child on its mother's lap,
so is my soul within me.
O Israel, hope in the Lord,
both now and forever. Psalm 131

Glory to the Father. . .

Reading

Praised be God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all consolation! He comforts us in all our afflications and thus enables us to comfort those who are in trouble, with the same consolation we have received from him. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4

Intercessions

Lord Jesus, intercede for us with your heavenly Father,
--despite our offenses, abide with us.
Lord Jesus, conqueror of death, strengthen our faith in your resurrection,
--in the stillness of night, abide with us.
Lord Jesus, image of the unseen God, help us to know the Father,
--in our works, abide with us.
Lord Jesus, light of the world, bring us hope that never fails,
--by your Spirit, abide with us.
