Friday, second week of Advent (St. Damasus)
Blessed St. Damasus’ Day!
You can find his story here.
Acts 20: 17-18, 28-32, 36 (Keep watch over the flock–savage wolves will come among you)
Psalm 110:1-4 “You are a priest forever, in the line of Melchizedek”
+John 15:9-17 (This is My commandment: love one another as I love you)
The savage wolves
from which I must defend
come from within
my tainted heart,
as well as from without.
I must defend
by being steeped
in God’s command
by laying down my life
and rising up
Is the love I show to others strong enough to defend them from myself? From themselves?
Do I remain in Jesus’ Love by loving others with His Love?
