Readings of the Day
RB: Ch 37 Care for the Elderly and the Young
Mass: Phm 7-20; Resp Ps 146; Lk 17:20-25

Refresh my heart in Christ

Lord, Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, open our hearts so that we love you with our whole heart, our whole soul, and all our strength, and love our neighbor as ourselves.

Through Christ the teacher, O Lord,
instruct those who feed you with Christ, the living Bread,
that on the feast of day of blessed Albert the Great
they may learn your truth
and express it in works of charity.
Through Christ our Lord.
(Prayer after Communion, Mass)

Although human nature itself is inclined to be compassionate toward the old and the young, the authority of the rule should also provide for them.
(RB 36:1)

'The Kingdom of God is in your midst.' It is not spectacular. It grows in silence, in hiding, through witness, prayer, and attraction of the Spirit.
(Pope Francis, Twitter, November 15, 2018)
