Day 4 – Weekend prayer – Saturday, March 4 (with Sunday reflection)

We will hear at Mass on Sunday the story of Jesus being tempted by the devil in the desert.  St. Thérèse speaks about what she does when she feels a spiritual combat – she runs away from the evil and into the arms of Jesus!  Maybe we feel angry at our friend or our brother or sister?  Maybe we want to not tell our mom and dad when we’ve done something wrong?  Maybe we are tempted to lie?  These are all moments of temptation and our inside voice of the Holy Spirit lets us know “uh oh! This is not good!” So, what do we do?  Do we debate it in our minds and try to think and argue about it with our mom or dad?  St. Thérèse would say no!  Run from that evil and into Jesus’ arms!  How do we do that?  Say a prayer right away or walk away from someone or s situation that may make you lose your temper or just speak that truth right away!  Then say a prayer to Jesus to help you – Jesus always comes to help us!


In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Lord Jesus, please help us have the courage to always run to you right away when we meet with temptation!  You resisted the devil in the desert and only You can guide us through the storms safely.

"On each fresh occasion of combat, when the enemy desires to challenge me, I conduct myself valiantly: knowing that to fight a duel is an unworthy act, I turn my back upon the adversary without ever looking him in the face; then I run to my Jesus and tell Him I am ready to shed every drop of blood in testimony of my belief that there is a Heaven, I tell Him I am glad to be unable to contemplate, while on earth, with the eyes of the soul, the beautiful Heaven that awaits me so He will deign to open it for eternity to poor unbelievers." – Story of A Soul, Chapter IX

Lord Jesus, please help us to learn to replace failings with little acts of love and sacrifice.  Help us see who needs your love today and act on it.

Our Father …
Hail Mary …
Glory Be …
