Today is the Feast of St. Elizabeth of Hungary. She was a saint who showed care for the poor and those who were in need. She was an example of compassion.
Throughout November we continue to reflect on the virtue of Justice. Christian justice is rooted in love. It is based on fairness, mercy and compassion. We are called to be kind and to give generously. These are qualities that lead us to live lives where justice will prevail. OCGE 7e
In our prayer today let us ask for guidance and the wisdom to be charitable to everyone we meet.
God of Charity and Justice,
We often ask the question, “What would Jesus do?” Help us today to have the wisdom to answer this question and to act on doing the right and loving thing. It is not always easy to act as You would, but with your guidance we know we can follow in your footsteps. We make this prayer in your name, Lord Jesus.
