Sometimes we forget how meaningful and powerful the Sacraments are, and how deeply they involve us in the Church. Saint Abercius Marcellus knew the true unifying power of Baptism and the Eucharist. Meditate on the Sacraments that you have received and the ones that you will receive someday. Ask God to help you understand their importance in your Christian faith.
Holy Spirit, help me to be rooted in God through my prayer, the Sacraments, and my involvement in the Church. Remind me daily that Jesus Christ is my friend and Savior. (Taken from "Take Ten: Daily Bible Reflections for Teens.")
