St. Lawrence – Pray for us! –
When Jesus says we are to hate our life he doesn’t mean that we are to be miserable or seek premature death but that we value the service of God and other people more highly than our personal comfort. We are all called to serve putting personal interests at the bottom of our agenda. Service is the basis of sainthood and of daily discipleship. So let’s serve one another with a sense of gladness as Christ and the saints have served us, giving without counting the cost.
