Mercy Bible Study: Sesson One Readings

As I mentioned last month, I am blogging through my bible study using the study guide Mercy by Fr. Mitch Pacwa, S.J. In January we read the introduction and reflected on the connection between Divine Mercy and the Sacred Heart of Mercy.

Now, for February we begin to delve into the bible study and read pages 19 through 31. There are also several scripture verses to read and “investigate”:

Sirach 28:1-2

Matthew 6:12-15

Mark 11:25

Luke 17:3

Ephesians 4:32

Colossians 3:12-13

Sirach 28:3-5

Sirach 28:6

Matthew 18:21-35

Matthew 9:9-11

Matthew 9:12-13

Sirach 2:1-18

Don’t be intimidated by the number of passages to read. Many of the verses are very short with only one verse to read. Just take your time. If you read one passage a day you will get through them in 13 days. Toward the end of the month I will post any reflections or insights I discover.

Weekly Goals

Set Goals

Here’s how I did last week:

1. Read read through the gospel of Matthew for 5 minutes a day. (Missed two days, but made the other days!)

2. Pray the rosary each day.

3. Write for at least five minutes each day (fiction, like I mentioned in my goals for 2013).

4. Organize my dresser drawers. (Didn’t get to this…)

5. Go to Brookdale to get the books I need for next semester. It starts up a week from Tuesday all ready. Yikes! (I also got a call that one of the classes I was supposed to take was canceled. I may or may not be adding a fourth class. We’ll see.)

Here’s my goals for this coming week. I start classes tomorrow so I’m going to continue keeping my goals simple:

1. Continue reading through the gospel of Matthew five minutes per day.

2. Pray the rosary each day.

3. Start classes and work up a plan to keep on top of my course work.

4. Date night with Michael. My mom is keeping Andrew overnight next Friday and we’ll have some time alone. 🙂 )

5. Write for at least 5 minutes (of fiction) each day.
