Other Things From the Show (not in the podcast):
Evangelization Challenge: Commit to praying for someone who needs it today. When someone’s needs come up in conversation, offer to pray with them right there or make time to say a prayer soon.
Prayer to St. Martin de Porres:
To you Saint Martin de Porres we prayerfully lift up our hearts filled with serene confidence and devotion. Mindful of your unbounded and helpful charity to all levels of society and also of your meekness and humility of heart, we offer our petitions to you. Pour out upon our families the precious gifts of your generous intercession; show to the people of every race and every color the paths of unity and of justice; implore from our Father in heaven the coming of his kingdom, so that through mutual benevolence in God men may increase the fruits of grace and merit the rewards of eternal life. Amen.
Readings & Reflections: Jesus came for the sinners. Are we the complaining Scribes or are we the ones listening to Jesus?
Saint Quote of the Week:
“Compassion is preferable to cleanliness: with a little bit of soap I can clean my bed, but think of the flood of tears I would require to clean from my soul the stain that harshness against this unfortunate would leave.” -Saint Martin de Porres
