Prayer of the Day

Daily Prayer

September 5th, 2015
"The Son of Man is lord of the Sabbath." Luke 6 : 5
Daily Prayer

What does the commandment “keep holy the Sabbath” require of us?  The     “Sabbath rest” was meant to be a time to remember and celebrate God’s goodness and the goodness of his work, both in creation and redemption.  It was a day set apart for the praise of God, his work of creation, and his saving actions on our behalf. Pope Francis “It is meant to be a day which heals our relationships with God, with ourselves, with others and with the world. We are called to include in our work a dimension of receptivity and gratuity, which is different from mere inactivity”.  Laudato Si’ No. 237

 

Prayer

"Lord, may I honour you in my work and in my rest and treat my neighbour with respect and kindness. Keep me free from a critical and intolerant spirit that I may seek the good of my neighbour in all situations." Amen
