Kindness and intelligence don’t always deliver us from the pitfalls and traps.
—Barbara Grizzuti Harrison

Being human means we’ll have hard times along with pleasant ones. Whether with friends, at school, or at home, we’ll find reasons for sadness or anger as easily as for laughter. In every part of our lives, we’re offered just what we need for growth.

Being the best we know how to be doesn’t mean we’ll escape confusion or pain. Through the troubling times we learn to trust in a Higher Power; we learn patience; we learn to let go and let God decide outcomes. The troubling times offer us growth and serenity, our keys to happiness.

What hidden gifts will I find in today’s troubles?

Daily Bible Readings From The Universal Life Church World Headquarters

Universal Life Church Daily Thought and Daily Bible Readings

Reading 1, Proverbs 3:27-34

27 Refuse no kindness to those who have a right to it, if it is in your power to perform it.

28 Do not say to your neighbour, ‘Go away! Come another time! I will give it you tomorrow,’ if you can do it now.

29 Do not plot harm against your neighbour who is living unsuspecting beside you.

30 Do not pick a groundless quarrel with anyone who has done you no harm.

31 Do not envy the man of violence, never model your conduct on his;

32 for the wilful wrong-doer is abhorrent to Yahweh, who confides only in the honest.

33 Yahweh’s curse lies on the house of the wicked, but he blesses the home of the upright.

34 He mocks those who mock, but accords his favour to the humble.

Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 15:2-3, 3-4, 5

2 Whoever lives blamelessly, who acts uprightly, who speaks the truth from the heart,

3 who keeps the tongue under control, who does not wrong a comrade, who casts no discredit on a neighbour,

4 who looks with scorn on the vile, but honours those who fear Yahweh, who stands by an oath at any cost,

5 who asks no interest on loans, who takes no bribe to harm the innocent. No one who so acts can ever be shaken.

Gospel, Luke 8:16-18

16 ‘No one lights a lamp to cover it with a bowl or to put it under a bed. No, it is put on a lamp-stand so that people may see the light when they come in.

17 For nothing is hidden but it will be made clear, nothing secret but it will be made known and brought to light.

18 So take care how you listen; anyone who has, will be given more; anyone who has not, will be deprived even of what he thinks he has.’

Ordination

A vocation is a fruit that ripens in a well cultivated field of mutual love that becomes mutual service, in the context of an authentic ecclesial life.

Young man, the secret of my success is that at an early age I discovered I was not God.
—Oliver Wendell Holmes

Sometimes, in our families, we try to get parents or brothers or sisters to treat us the way we want them to, to do things we want them to. When they’re upset or angry with us, we try to get them to stop, rather than allow them to be angry.

But our feelings are ours alone, and we are responsible only for how we feel. Those around us are not the cause of our feelings. We are.

This knowledge is a big responsibility, because we know we cannot blame others for our bad moods. But it is a fact. And this fact is also a wonderful freedom for us, for it means that we also have the power to make ourselves happy, no matter what goes on around us.

How can I make myself happy today?

Daily Bible Readings From The Universal Life Church World Headquarters

Universal Life Church Daily Thought and Daily Bible Readings

Reading 1, First Corinthians 15:12-20

12 Now if Christ is proclaimed as raised from the dead, how can some of you be saying that there is no resurrection of the dead?

13 If there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ cannot have been raised either,

14 and if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is without substance, and so is your faith.

15 What is more, we have proved to be false witnesses to God, for testifying against God that he raised Christ to life when he did not raise him — if it is true that the dead are not raised.

16 For, if the dead are not raised, neither is Christ;

17 and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is pointless and you have not, after all, been released from your sins.

18 In addition, those who have fallen asleep in Christ are utterly lost.

19 If our hope in Christ has been for this life only, we are of all people the most pitiable.

20 In fact, however, Christ has been raised from the dead, as the first-fruits of all who have fallen asleep.

Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 17:1, 6-7, 8, 15

1 [Prayer Of David] Listen, Yahweh, to an upright cause, pay attention to my cry, lend an ear to my prayer, my lips free from deceit.

6 I call upon you, God, for you answer me; turn your ear to me, hear what I say.

7 Show the evidence of your faithful love, saviour of those who hope in your strength against attack.

8 Guard me as the pupil of an eye, shelter me in the shadow of your wings

15 But I in my uprightness will see your face, and when I awake I shall be filled with the vision of you.

Gospel, Luke 8:1-3

1 Now it happened that after this he made his way through towns and villages preaching and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. With him went the Twelve,

2 as well as certain women who had been cured of evil spirits and ailments: Mary surnamed the Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out,

3 Joanna the wife of Herod’s steward Chuza, Susanna, and many others who provided for them out of their own resources.

I will, I will accept myself
With hope and fear and wonder
And what I have joined together
Let no man put asunder.
—Dory Preven

There is a wonderful freedom in acceptance. When we accept ourselves, with all our imperfections, we can then begin to accept others just as they are. This is especially exciting when we apply this discovery to our own families. A family is like a bouquet of flowers arranged in a common vase. Each flower is different. One might be blue, one white, one a rose, one a chrysanthemum. But each adds to the beauty of the whole bouquet and enhances the vase that holds it.

It isn’t important that we know why one flower is blue and one white. We don’t have to understand how a rose becomes a rose to appreciate the arrangement. We just accept it for what it is. Acceptance of others does not mean agreement or approval. How boring if we only accepted those who reflected our own ideas and opinions! How dull to look upon a bouquet of exactly the same flowers.

Today, will I accept the differences between us as part of our beauty together?

Daily Bible Readings From The Universal Life Church World Headquarters

Universal Life Church Daily Thought and Daily Bible Readings

Reading 1, First Corinthians 15:1-11

1 I want to make quite clear to you, brothers, what the message of the gospel that I preached to you is; you accepted it and took your stand on it,

2 and you are saved by it, if you keep to the message I preached to you; otherwise your coming to believe was in vain.

3 The tradition I handed on to you in the first place, a tradition which I had myself received, was that Christ died for our sins, in accordance with the scriptures,

4 and that he was buried; and that on the third day, he was raised to life, in accordance with the scriptures;

5 and that he appeared to Cephas; and later to the Twelve;

6 and next he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers at the same time, most of whom are still with us, though some have fallen asleep;

7 then he appeared to James, and then to all the apostles.

8 Last of all he appeared to me too, as though I was a child born abnormally.

9 For I am the least of the apostles and am not really fit to be called an apostle, because I had been persecuting the Church of God;

10 but what I am now, I am through the grace of God, and the grace which was given to me has not been wasted. Indeed, I have worked harder than all the others — not I, but the grace of God which is with me.

11 Anyway, whether it was they or I, this is what we preach and what you believed.

Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 118:1-2, 16-17, 28

1 Alleluia! Give thanks to Yahweh for he is good, for his faithful love endures for ever.

2 Let the House of Israel say, ‘His faithful love endures for ever.’

16 Yahweh’s right hand is victorious, Yahweh’s right hand is triumphant!’

17 I shall not die, I shall live to recount the great deeds of Yahweh.

28 You are my God, I thank you, all praise to you, my God. I thank you for hearing me, and making yourself my Saviour.

Gospel, Luke 7:36-50

36 One of the Pharisees invited him to a meal. When he arrived at the Pharisee’s house and took his place at table,

37 suddenly a woman came in, who had a bad name in the town. She had heard he was dining with the Pharisee and had brought with her an alabaster jar of ointment.

38 She waited behind him at his feet, weeping, and her tears fell on his feet, and she wiped them away with her hair; then she covered his feet with kisses and anointed them with the ointment.

39 When the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, ‘If this man were a prophet, he would know who this woman is and what sort of person it is who is touching him and what a bad name she has.’

40 Then Jesus took him up and said, ‘Simon, I have something to say to you.’ He replied, ‘Say on, Master.’

41 ‘There was once a creditor who had two men in his debt; one owed him five hundred denarii, the other fifty.

42 They were unable to pay, so he let them both off. Which of them will love him more?’

43 Simon answered, ‘The one who was let off more, I suppose.’ Jesus said, ‘You are right.’

44 Then he turned to the woman and said to Simon, ‘You see this woman? I came into your house, and you poured no water over my feet, but she has poured out her tears over my feet and wiped them away with her hair.

45 You gave me no kiss, but she has been covering my feet with kisses ever since I came in.

46 You did not anoint my head with oil, but she has anointed my feet with ointment.

47 For this reason I tell you that her sins, many as they are, have been forgiven her, because she has shown such great love. It is someone who is forgiven little who shows little love.’

48 Then he said to her, ‘Your sins are forgiven.’

49 Those who were with him at table began to say to themselves, ‘Who is this man, that even forgives sins?’

50 But he said to the woman, ‘Your faith has saved you; go in peace.’

Rock star Bret Michaels forms unlikely bond with special needs Brunswick boy
Singer now helping his dreams come true

By: Homa Bash
Posted: 5:25 PM, Sep 16, 2014

Johnny Kocisko has an unlikely best buddy — rockstar Bret Michaels.

The 21-year-old Brunswick boy, who has Down syndrome, met Michaels last year and the two hit it off.

“Bret Michaels and me, we’ve been friends a long time. I go to all his concerts,” Kocisko said.

“You’ll never, ever meet anybody that’ll be a better friend to you than Johnny,” Linda Rubinski, Johnny’s mom, added.

Since the pair met, Johnny’s gone to any and all of Michaels’ nearby concerts, standing backstage while the Poison singer rocks on.

Michaels even gifted Johnny with a signed guitar last Christmas, a precious memento for a boy who’s been through so much.

“He’s a blessing. He’s such a blessing,” Rubinski said. “We were supposed to lose him a long time ago, but he has lightened everyone’s life.”

Which is probably why, out of more than 2,000 entries, a photo of Johnny rocking out on a guitar was recently picked by the National Down Syndrome Society to be featured in Times Square this weekend. It will be presented Saturday just before the 20th annual Buddy Walk in New York City that raises money and awareness for Down syndrome.

“I wanted to really take him,” Rubinski said. “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. They only pick you once.”

And that’s where Michaels comes back in. Rubinski mentioned Johnny’s photo being picked to the rock star at his concert in Cleveland, for which her son had an all-access badge and backstage access to, over the weekend and got a response she never expected.

“He said, I’ll do it, I’ll take care of it. I was in awe,” she said. Michaels offered to pay for a hotel for mother and son for a week, which gives them time to make a guest appearance on The Chew with Michael Symon, another big fan of Johnny’s.

“I feel so happy, I get to go to New York City,” Johnny said, with a big smile stretched across his face.

And as he gets ready for his first trip to the Big Apple, he has one message for his best friend:
“Thank you so much Bret. Don’t take my girls man, and rock on.”

Hope is the thing with feathers
that perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.
—Emily Dickinson

We often hum and sing to ourselves because it makes us feel content. It is the melody itself that makes us feel good – words and thoughts do not matter.

Having hope for ourselves and for our universe is like having a melody always moving inside us. The melody may be calm or exciting, but most of all it brings with it beauty and a sense of peace. Hope can overcome the need for words and thoughts and promises. Hope is the melody that keeps us going, the hum that continues even when there are no words to the song. Hope is not a melody we think about – it must come when we believe in the goodness of our world. If we have faith in a power greater than ourselves, we will be able to find the melody of hope inside us at all times.

What is my hope for today?

Daily Bible Readings From The Universal Life Church World Headquarters

Universal Life Church Daily Thought and Daily Bible Readings

Reading 1, First Corinthians 12:31–13:13

31 Set your mind on the higher gifts. And now I am going to put before you the best way of all.

1 Though I command languages both human and angelic — if I speak without love, I am no more than a gong booming or a cymbal clashing.

2 And though I have the power of prophecy, to penetrate all mysteries and knowledge, and though I have all the faith necessary to move mountains — if I am without love, I am nothing.

3 Though I should give away to the poor all that I possess, and even give up my body to be burned — if I am without love, it will do me no good whatever.

4 Love is always patient and kind; love is never jealous; love is not boastful or conceited,

5 it is never rude and never seeks its own advantage, it does not take offence or store up grievances.

6 Love does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but finds its joy in the truth.

7 It is always ready to make allowances, to trust, to hope and to endure whatever comes.

8 Love never comes to an end. But if there are prophecies, they will be done away with; if tongues, they will fall silent; and if knowledge, it will be done away with.

9 For we know only imperfectly, and we prophesy imperfectly;

10 but once perfection comes, all imperfect things will be done away with.

11 When I was a child, I used to talk like a child, and see things as a child does, and think like a child; but now that I have become an adult, I have finished with all childish ways.

12 Now we see only reflections in a mirror, mere riddles, but then we shall be seeing face to face. Now I can know only imperfectly; but then I shall know just as fully as I am myself known.

13 As it is, these remain: faith, hope and love, the three of them; and the greatest of them is love.

Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 33:2-3, 4-5, 12, 22

2 Give thanks to Yahweh on the lyre, play for him on the ten-stringed lyre.

3 Sing to him a new song, make sweet music for your cry of victory.

4 The word of Yahweh is straightforward, all he does springs from his constancy.

5 He loves uprightness and justice; the faithful love of Yahweh fills the earth.

12 How blessed the nation whose God is Yahweh, the people he has chosen as his heritage.

22 Yahweh, let your faithful love rest on us, as our hope has rested in you.

Gospel, Luke 7:31-35

31 ‘What comparison, then, can I find for the people of this generation? What are they like?

32 They are like children shouting to one another while they sit in the market place: We played the pipes for you, and you wouldn’t dance; we sang dirges, and you wouldn’t cry.

33 ‘For John the Baptist has come, not eating bread, not drinking wine, and you say, “He is possessed.”

34 The Son of man has come, eating and drinking, and you say, “Look, a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.”

35 Yet wisdom is justified by all her children.’
