MAKE US KNOW THE SHORTNESS OF OUR LIFE THAT WE MAY GAIN WISDOM OF HEART. (Ps 90:12)
A human life may sometimes look too short to be worth much, but God, who sees the works of his hands from the perspective of enduring love, clothes even the passing wildflowers with splendor. WE ARE ONLY DUST—BUT BELOVED DUST! (Magnificat)
PRAYER: O God of wisdom and of love, you have made us as fragile as the flowers of the field, yet you have made us strong in the hope of life everlasting. Teach us to see this day as gift enough, that we may live it for your glory and render it back to you in praise when evening falls, through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
