Readings of the Day

Jn 12:24-26

Jesus said to his disciples:
"Amen, amen, I say to you,
unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies,
it remains just a grain of wheat;
but if it dies, it produces much fruit.
Whoever loves his life loses it,
and whoever hates his life in this world
will preserve it for eternal life.
Whoever serves me must follow me,
and where I am, there also will my servant be.
The Father will honor whoever serves me."

 

 

Reflection

We give up something in life for a higher cause.  We fast from selfishness, envy, greed and apathy for the good of the world...so that the love of God may be felt by all and the glory of God will be seen in the majesty and wonder of his creation.
