"Offer sacrifice in the right spirit and trust in the Lord."
These times call for the reading of the Psalms. I know many of us do not care for the word or the idea of sacrifice, but every day we are being asked to put aside our personal whims for the good of others. We can be courageous and trust in the belief that our sacrifices will not be in vain. We can do this because God is leading us to healing in every moment. Our sacrifices need not be made grudgingly; they can be made in love.
"We must realize that we cannot be really fed, strengthened, purified, enriched and made holy unless we fulfill the duties of the present moment."
Abandonment to Divine Providence
