Daily Meditation for May 21, 2024

“Throw your cares on the Lord, and he will support you.” These words from the responsorial psalm for today’s Mass remind us that we do not carry our crosses alone. As we reflect on these words, we are reminded that Jesus walks with us each day. Sometimes he may seem to be far away, but he is always near to us. As we face the joys of the day, we can thank him for the gifts that he gives to us. What gifts will you receive today? What cross will we experience today? Whether it be joys that are easy to accept or crosses that are more of a challenge, Jesus walks with us on this journey of life. We just need to be aware of his presence and thank him for being with us through whatever happens during this day.
