My reflection today comes from the prayer at Mass this morning

“O God, author of our freedom and our salvation, listen to the voice of our pleading and grant that those you have redeemed by the shedding of your Son’s blood may have life through you and, under your protection, rejoice forever unharmed. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen”

I also was struck by this short reflection:

“Every morning you are handed twenty four golden hours. They are some of the few things in this world that you get free of charge. If you had all the money in the world, you couldn’t buy an extra hour. What will you do with this priceless treasure?”

God is with us during each of our twenty four hours; whether we feel God’s presence or not.
