St. Flavia Domitilla
Love. It's so simple, it has become trite. Jesus says it is all we need to do: love one another. He doesn't play any games, or pull any punches. There's no club level you have to get to in order to find the secrets of God. No, Jesus lays it all out for us. Love one another.
One more thing: Loving our family, especially our rebellious teens or tiresome twos, can be a real challenge. While you don't have to like them, you do have to love them enough to be the mother God wants you to be. That might be unpopular. But approach your parenting like the apostles did when forming the early church. Go to the Holy Spirit; seek council from those who are wise and holy; and trust in the Lord to help you make the right decisions steeped in love.
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for showing me how to love. Help me to always model your love to my children, even when they are not very likable. In your name I pray. Amen. St. Flavia, pray for me.
