Forgiving Father, grant us forgiveness for sometimes we fail to forgive one another. We use to count and calculate. But today you are teaching us the right way how to forgive, that is, to forgive from the heart. Thank you for reminding us who we really are to you and to each other. That you are our Loving Father and we are brothers and sisters to each other.
We are one family. Today we thank you for your loving forgiveness. Grant us the grace to correct others fraternally. Grant the grace of humility and true remorse from our wrong doings as well. Make us grow in love and friendship daily. Grant this through Christ our Lord. We thank you for you gift of life nourishment.
Today you teach us the true meaning Christian life, that is, to undergo a little dying daily in order for us to truly live with you and others. We know its not an easy process, but the outcome is priceless. Grant us the grace to endure the painful process brought about by selfishness and indifference so that others may live. We ask this through Jesus Christ, in the Holy Spirit. God of Love, thank you for loving us to the end.
You prefer to apply the law of love than just the law of the land. You offer your life to save us, while sometimes we only give when expecting something in return. May we do everything out of love. Make us faithful members your church and make us godly citizens, responsible enough to fulfill our social duties. Help us grow our knowledge and love of you, especially the young. May we come to know and love you more. May our faith become personal, not hearsays, so that when you ask us, like Peter, we can also give the right answer about who you really are to each of us.
Each of us is very personal to you. May You also be very personal to each one of us. Sorry if sometimes we act as if we entitled to ask anything. That we have right to ask this or that. May we imitate the attitude of the leper in the gospel today, though he suffered a lot from that miserable situation. Your will is not just to heal each one of us but to save us from sin and death. You allowed St. Juliana to received the Body of Christ in her heart when she was unable to consume the host because of her illness. You called her home joyfully after receiving the Eucharist.
May the Eucharist deepen our love for you and for one another and may it become a source of strength in time of distress, our food in time of fasting and our healing in time of sickness. Almighty God, you prepared the heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary to be your dwelling place. You made her heart pure, immaculate and undefiled to welcome you in her life. Thus she was found favor with you and she made room for you in her heart. Purify our hearts, we pray, that we too may have a room in our hearts to welcome you all the time.
Wash our hearts from all the stain of sin that we may treasure your Word and ponder it like Mary did. Help us to have pure hearts to know the power of your Word and help us to know who we are and who we are to become. Be the king of our hearts, Lord, now and forever. Being misunderstood is probably one of the most disheartening of human experiences.
Jesus worked great s among the people and yet the people failed to understand Jesus. Jesus wanted to draw people to himself as their Savior, but they were interested only in satisfying their human needs. Stephen, a deacon, followed in the footsteps of Jesus. He too worked great wonders and s among his own people. His only intention was to draw them in faith to the person of Jesus Christ as their Savior.
Not only did some of his own people fail to understand, but they also actually turned against him and went so far as to bring false witness against him before the Sanhedrin, the ruling body of the Jews. Their pain was not lessened, but their determination was left undeterred. No matter how careful we are with others, no matter how loving our intention, we will face misunderstanding, sometimes even actual rejection. The natural reaction is simply to give up on another person.
But God calls us to an attitude and way of acting which at times may even be courageous. It is not the Christian approach to meet misunderstanding with disdain or rejection with contempt. God calls us to use every avenue possible to communicate properly with others and to overcome misunderstandings.
Such an approach is especially vital toward those with whom we live or work. And through all our efforts at reconciliation, we should have a certain serenity and peace of mind derived from the realization that we are following the example given us by Jesus and St. Our gracious and loving Father, You have promised that You will never leave us nor forsake us, whatever may be the circumstances.
You are the same yesterday, today and forever. Father, fill our hearts and minds with Your peace which surpasses all understanding. Help us to live in peace with one another.
Fill us with that peace which the world can never give. Take control of all our thoughts, words, and deeds. Help us to be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger. Did you ever notice how many of the resurrection appearances of Jesus involve food? The Gospels report seven different resurrection appearances.
Four of them involve a meal. Mark reports that Jesus appeared to the disciples while they were at table. Seven of the disciples come in from fishing and there is Jesus cooking some bread and fish on a charcoal fire.
Through his appearances Jesus wanted to teach that he is still present to us and, most important, he is not present simply to be looked at, simply to be adored. He came to engage us, to connect with us, and to draw us into his living and dying and passing through death to life.
Jesus ate with his disciples the night before he died. And he continues to do the same thing after he rises from the dead. You might even get to shake hands with them.
But… to have a meal with them. What a difference. So when you come to the Eucharist, always think of those meals the Risen Lord shared with his disciples. He is doing the same thing with us. The Risen Lord is standing on the shore waiting for them. I pray that this Holy Communion may not bring me condemnation and punishment but forgiveness and salvation. May it be a helmet of faith and a shield of good will. May it purify me from evil ways and put an end to my evil passions.
May it bring me charity and patience, humility and obedience, and growth in the power to do good. May it be my strong defense against all my enemies, visible and invisible, and the perfect calming of all my evil impulses, bodily and spiritual.
May it unite me more closely to you, the One true God, and lead me safely through death to everlasting happiness with You. And I pray that You will lead me, a sinner, to the banquet where you, with Your Son and holy Spirit, are true and perfect light, total fulfillment, everlasting joy, gladness without end, and perfect happiness to your saints.Hallelujiah latin adult personals thank you
