December 1 - St. Edmund Campion
Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house. But it did not collapse; it had been set solidly on rock. And everyone who listens to these words of mine but does not act on them will be like a fool who built his house on sand (Matthew 7: 24-27).
Using our will and conquering our feelings trains us to build our lives on solid rock. Our feelings change and move around like the sand.
Thank you, Lord, for this time of preparation before Christmas.
