Sober Thought of the Day
“Ignorance is a lot like alcohol: the more you have of it, the less you are able to see its effect on you.”  ― Jay M. Bylsma

It is true what the founders of AA discovered, that regular contact with another alcoholic is imperative for the sober person doing this recovery thing. When I go too long without a meeting–or a chat with another who “gets it”–my head gets squirly and my heart thinks a drink would be a grand idea.  Number 9

Psalm of the Day
Responsorial Psalm PS 105:1-2, 3-4, 6-7, 8-9

R. (3b) Rejoice, O hearts that seek the Lord.

Give thanks to the LORD, invoke his name;
make known among the nations his deeds.
Sing to him, sing his praise,
proclaim all his wondrous deeds.
R. Rejoice, O hearts that seek the Lord.

Glory in his holy name;
rejoice, O hearts that seek the LORD!
Look to the LORD in his strength;
seek to serve him constantly.
R. Rejoice, O hearts that seek the Lord.

You descendants of Abraham, his servants,
sons of Jacob, his chosen ones!
He, the LORD, is our God;
throughout the earth his judgments prevail.
R. Rejoice, O hearts that seek the Lord.

He remembers forever his covenant
which he made binding for a thousand generationsB
Which he entered into with Abraham
and by his oath to Isaac.
R. Rejoice, O hearts that seek the Lord.

Today’s Saint
For prayer is nothing else than being on terms of friendship with God. St. Teresa of Avila
