What better to way to start and finish each day than with scripture? In this new calendar, Fr. Larry Richards exhorts us to put the Word of God first and last!
July 15 Saint Bonaventure
Morning Devotion: “Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.” (Matthew 10:39) \
The “I” must die to live! Live for Jesus!
Evening Devotion: “The LORD turn His face toward you / and give you peace.” (Numbers 6:26, NIV)
May you know HIS peace tonight, not the world’s. He is in control—so trust.
July 16 Our Lady of Mount Carmel
Morning Devotion: [Jesus] began to reproach the towns … since they had not repented. (Matthew 11:20)
DAILY repentance is needed to follow Jesus—so begin again. Pax.
Evening Devotion: God is our refuge and strength, / an ever-present help in trouble. (Psalm 46:1, NIV)
He is EVER-PRESENT to you; you are NEVER alone. He is your refuge.
These short daily meditations are all excerpted from a recently published desk calendar by Fr. Larry Richards entitled No Bible, No Breakfast; No Bible, No Bed
