April 21: Reflection on One’s Shortcomings

            Reflecting on our shortcomings can easily become dismal and unproductive. So we ask God to give us the maturity and introspection we need to wholeheartedly examine our limitations. May we discover the flaws that we can work on and have the motivation to improve ourselves. May we accept the limitation that we cannot affect and place our trust in God and our community to help us in times of weakness. We pray that our reflections allow us to accept our humanity and, without causing stress or undue pressure, allow us to better ourselves.
