Sober Thought of the Day
“Every gathering has its moment. As an adult, I distract myself by trying to identify it, dreading the inevitable downswing that is sure to follow. The guests will repeat themselves one too many times, or you’ll run out of dope or liquor and realize that it was all you ever had in common.”
― David Sedaris, Naked

Today’s Saint
“On the question of relating to our fellowman – our neighbor’s spiritual need transcends every commandment. Everything else we do is a means to an end. But love is an end already, since God is love.”
-St. Benedicta (Edith Stein)

Psalm of the Day
Responsorial Psalm PS 119:12, 16, 18, 27, 34, 35

R. (35a) Guide me, Lord, in the way of your commands.

Blessed are you, O LORD;
teach me your statutes.
R. Guide me, Lord, in the way of your commands.

In your statutes I will delight;
I will not forget your words.
R. Guide me, Lord, in the way of your commands.

Open my eyes, that I may consider
the wonders of your law.
R. Guide me, Lord, in the way of your commands.

Make me understand the way of your precepts,
and I will meditate on your wondrous deeds.
R. Guide me, Lord, in the way of your commands.

Give me discernment, that I may observe your law
and keep it with all my heart.

Lead me in the path of your commands,
for in it I delight.
R. Guide me, Lord, in the way of your commands.
