Read the daily quote from Pope Francis

Jesus reminds us

“Jesus reminds us that one does not stay in the house of the Father for a reward but because one has the dignity of being children who share responsibility. There is no ‘bargaining’ with God, but rather following in the footsteps of Jesus who gave himself on the Cross without measure.” — Pope Francis

Reflection: Have you ever tried to bargain with God? What was the deal you were hoping to make or the sin you were trying to downplay? How did this bargain veer off the path Jesus set out for the life of love, peace, and justice? Is there a situation you are having a hard time accepting responsibility for or admitting your part in creating? Invite Jesus to lighten the load of discipleship and carry the cross of responsibility with you.
