For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.
This world, Lord, beautiful and supportive as it is, is not our home. Mortal life is a journey, not a destination. To live for ourselves and earthly riches and pleasures is to lose sight of the life for which you created us. When we give up worldly goals (our own life) and trust in your promise, truth and providence (eternal life), we walk the faith that is our path to your glory.
Whatever this day brings, please help me to take up my cross and follow you.
