February 17 - The Seven Founders of the Order of Servites
Jesus said to his disciples: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. Which one of you would hand his son a stone when he asks for a loaf of bread, or a snake when he asks for a fish? If you then, who are wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good things to those who ask him. Do to others whatever you would have them do to you. This is the law and the prophets” (Matthew 7: 7-12).
We should remember this Gospel passage every day of our lives. Ask and do, pray and work. This is what daily life is about, talking with God and working with him for others.
Lord Jesus, help me to remember to pray even if only for a few seconds each day.
