Sober Thought of the Day
“I don’t have a drinking problem ‘Cept when I can’t get a drink.”
Tom Waits

I remember the times I couldn’t get a drink. I’d be at a work event or out with normal drinkers. After sharing a bottle of wine, I’d obsess wondering when somebody would order more. And nobody would. For them, one glass was enough. And I wouldn’t order any either because then what would they think of  me? And I was miserable. Number 9

Psalm of the Day
Responsorial Psalm PS 145:8-9, 13CD-14, 17-18

R. (8a) The Lord is gracious and merciful.

The LORD is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger and of great kindness.
The LORD is good to all
and compassionate toward all his works.
R. The Lord is gracious and merciful.

The LORD is faithful in all his words
and holy in all his works.
The LORD lifts up all who are falling
and raises up all who are bowed down.
R. The Lord is gracious and merciful.

The LORD is just in all his ways
and holy in all his works.
The LORD is near to all who call upon him,
to all who call upon him in truth.
R. The Lord is gracious and merciful.

Today’s Saint
“For me prayer is a surge of the heart, it is a simple look towards Heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy.”
St. Therese of Lisieux
