We cannot let this day go without stimulating in our souls a deep and effective desire to go back once again, to return like the prodigal son, so as to be closer to God. ICWG Sunday Reflection from Scepter Publishers.
Meditation on our last end can move us, while we are still on earth, to react against lukewarmness, against any reluctance to commit ourselves entirely to God’s service, and to develop our relationship with him. It can wean us from attachment to earthly things, which we must soon leave behind us in any case. In Conversation With God Sunday Reflection From Scepter Publishers
The Gospel of the Mass also invites us to be magnanimous, to have a big heart, like the heart of Christ. The Gospel exhorts us to bless those who curse us, to pray for those who persecute us. It calls upon us to do the good without expecting anything in return. ICWG Sunday Reflection from Scepter Publishers
The Christian has his hope in God. He knows and accepts his own weakness and so does not depend inordinately on his own resources. He knows that in any undertaking he must use all the human means open to him, but that above all he must rely on prayer. He knows and accepts joyfully that everything he has he receives from God.

In the apostolate, faith and obedience are indispensable. Of what use are our efforts, our human resources, our wakeful vigils or even our mortifications, if they are separated from any supernatural sense ...? Without obedience, everything is useless in God’s eyes. ICWG Sunday Reflection from Scepter Publishers.
