19 He fulfills the desire of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them.
Today would be a good day to rest in the Lord and go to Mass and receive His body and blood. As we receive realize that He has heard our cry’s and has saved us. Such is the love of our God!
Ponder with care on the truths and doctrines which the holy Church has laid before thee in the epistles and gospels; thank God with thy whole heart for the great favors and benefits which thou hast received in the incarnation and birth of Jesus Christ; examine thyself also whether thy faith is living and efficient, that thou mayest have the hope of being a child and heir of God ; ask thyself whether, during the past year, Christ has been thy fall or thy resurrection? hast thou confessed Him in heart and deed, or hast thou been a Christian only in name? With such exercises and examinations occupy thy mind until the New Year, that thou mayest be prepared to begin it worthily.
