This is Bishop Michael Burbidge of the Catholic Diocese of Arlington. So often we take the routine of daily life for granted. We wake up, thank God for the gift of a new day, then settle into our normal schedule. We often go about our obligations without thinking about what we are doing and for whom we are doing it. We even developed a saying for it: the “same old, same old.” But what if tomorrow you woke up and decided to let Our Lord know that whatever you did, no matter how routine, would be for his greater glory? This should also include the daily sacrifices you offer throughthe crosses you carry. Your day would be different, for sure. The mundane will suddenly have lasting value, and your work and tasks will be rooted in their true purpose. Therefore, make sure that everything you do this day and every day is for the greater glory of God.
