Sober Thought of the Day
“I see that a man cannot give himself up to drinking without being miserable one-half his days and mad the other.”
― Anne Brontë, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall

Today’s Saint
‘An evil suspicion darkens the mind (cf. Ecclus. 3:24) and diverts attention from the path to what lies beside it.’
St. Thalassios the Libyan

Psalm of the Day
Responsorial Psalm PS 131:1bcde, 2, 3

R. In you, O Lord, I have found my peace.

O LORD, my heart is not proud,
nor are my eyes haughty;
I busy not myself with great things,
nor with things too sublime for me.
R. In you, O Lord, I have found my peace.

Nay rather, I have stilled and quieted
my soul like a weaned child.
Like a weaned child on its mother’s lap,
so is my soul within me.
R. In you, O Lord, I have found my peace.

O Israel, hope in the LORD,
both now and forever.
R. In you, O Lord, I have found my peace
