Day 161, Morning

Today’s morning meditation is available below in audio and script formats. The audio version is also available for free download on the player.


“We ourselves possess Beauty when we are true to our own being; ugliness is in going over to another order; knowing ourselves, we are beautiful; in self-ignorance, we are ugly.”



Today, it is said that the image has become the person. If the public relations people can make you look good, you come to believe that you are good. 

We should never allow ourselves to emulate or admire images that merely look good. Whether in sports or entertainment or politics, celebrities offer good role models only when they stand for lasting values. (WLB)


As your day begins, spend a few moments in silence and stillness focussing on your true self. God alive in you.


• for our capacity to see God in all things, every creature, even ourselves

• for the Holy Spirit’s work in us and in the world

• for those who struggle with self esteem
