One Thing You Should Do Every Day
While it is easy to ask God to intercede on behalf of a particular person or problem, do we remember to thank him for all his generous gifts of love: a glorious sunset, a child's smile, a beautiful flower, a shimmering star, . . .
Do we begin each day with a morning offering?
O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer thee my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings of this day in union with the Holy Sacrifice throughout the world. Amen. (There are longer versions)
Do we end each day with an examination of conscience?
Do we make simple acts of praise? As we say during the Stations of the Cross
V.) We adore thee O Christ and we praise thee (Genuflect)
R.) Because by thy holy cross thou hast redeemed the world (Rise)
Where do you meet your Heavenly Father each day? Do you keep your appointed hour?
What is the one thing we should do every day? Thank our Divine Papa for the gift of life!
