Thankful for…(Indicate what you are thankful for today and say a special prayer for it.)

Suggestions: I am thankful for the love of family and friends. Thank you, Lord, and allow me to remember all of those who fill me with patience, love, and a sense of humor. Remind me of your deep love for me, and let the fire of that love be something I can share with everyone around me.



In today’s Gospel Jesus says, “I tell you, among those born of women, no one is greater than John; yet the least in the Kingdom of God is greater than he.” Is Jesus desire for those that are listening to emulate the humility of John? Are we listening to Him, are we prepared to blindly follow Him without question?
