SCRIPTURE REFLECTION FOR THE DAY BY REV FR ERBIN FERNANDEZ:
The Devil subtly lays snares for each of us to fall into. The Devil always appears initially as a helper. It is important for us in the battle not to rely on our own strength but on the strength of God. If we use our own strength, we will fall into the schemes of the Devil who is full of good intentions but nothing more! Let us be aware that today we too are in a spiritual battle, and not just a human striving for a good life.

Session 3: Thinking About My Purpose
What drives your life? Everyone’s life is driven by something.
Right now, you may be driven by a problem, a pressure, or a deadline. You may be driven by a painful memory, a haunting fear, or an unconscious belief. There are various circumstances, values, and emotions that can drive your life. Nothing matters more than knowing God’s purpose for your life, and nothing can compensate for not knowing them.
What would your family and friends say is the driving force of your life? What do you want it to be?
