Ask Yourself...questions for this week

Do you get jealous? Do you focus more on the things that other people have than on the gifts that God has given to you? Pray for humility. Pray to become less self-centered and more God-centered.

(Remember - though it varies from person to person, it generally takes no less than 21 days to develop a new habit. It also takes discipline, courage and determination on a daily basis.)

Jubilee of Mercy - the Door of Mercy is Open

I invite all Christians, everywhere, at this very moment, to a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ, or at least an openness to letting Him encounter them; I ask all of you to do this unfailingly each day. No one should think that this invitation is not meant for him or her.  — Pope Francis
