Ponder:When devastating news comes, are you able to hear the message, feel its impact, to “get up” and move forward in faith?
Pray:Dear Lord, stay with me and guide me through the hardest of times. Womb of God, Light of Christ, Comfort of Mary, Protection of Joseph, surround me and keep my troubled heart focused on being a presence of love.
