“The Pope is not an absolute monarch whose thoughts and desires are law. On the contrary: the Pope’s ministry is a guarantee of obedience to Christ and to his Word. He must not proclaim his own ideas, but rather constantly bind himself and the Church to obedience to God’s Word, in the face of every attempt to adapt it or water it down, and every form of opportunism.”
— His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI (11 May 2005)

Day 3 Challenge: Thanking God for those who have Loved you

Scripture: “How good and holy pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!” (Psalm 133:1)

Examples of Dr. Ronda: I thanked God for my parents, my twin-sister, many of my teachers, godparents, husband, mentors, children, grandchildren, mentors, priests, and so many friends of a lifetime of 74 years! Then I added thanksgiving for God’s love.

Your examples of people who loved you?

Prayer: Holy Trinity of Love, in your image we are to love one another. On the way of love so many have tending us, bound our wounds, walked with us, taught us laughed with us. In heaven there will be such a thanksgiving, but now, day by day, step by step, may we be more grateful.
