Sts. Cornelius and Cyprian
I love the image of the woman at the feet of Jesus. Surely she felt humiliated in front of all the church leaders, but she didn't let it stop her. She as entirely focused on being with Christ. How often do I have moments at his feet, where I am entirely given to him?
One more thing: Mom's days are busy! I have weeks when I feel more like Martha than Mary! On those hectic days, take just a few moments to close your eyes and imagine yourself at the feet of Christ, lovingly drying his feet with your hair. Don't try to say anything or fill the time with prayers; he knows your heart. Just submit yourself to him and he will forgive your transgressions and calm your spirit.
Prayer: Dear Jesus, I love you and desire to be with you forever. Please forgive me when I get so busy with worldly pursuits that I forget to spend time with you. Help me to listen for your voice calling me and to stop my hectic pace to be with you. In your name I pray, Amen. Sts. Cornelius and Cyrian, pray for me.
