Ponder:Do I satisfy every whim of physical and emotional appetite? How can I observe Friday as a day of penance?
Pray:Grant me the grace, oh my God, to love you above everything else. Teach me what is good, true, and beautiful and give me the grace, I pray, to detach from worldly passions and appetites.
