Prayer of the Day

Second Week of Advent – Feast of St. Lucy, Virgin and Martyr

December 13th, 2014
""And the disciples asked him; 'Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?'"" Matthew 17 : 10

“Elijah has indeed come and they treated him badly and now another “Elijah” has come in John the Baptist and finally the Son of Man will come and both of these will suffer also.” (Matthew 17 : 11-13)  Do I live my life as if I believe the Messiahs come among us and we are already redeemed and ready to live our lives  as disciples of Christ or am I gloomy and discontented with my lot?  We are already redeemed and know this but do we reflect this in our lives?  If not,  why not?

Prayer Lord help me to realise you have died to rescue me and guide me on my way to you. Let me be a light for others to follow and rejoice in my call to follow you. Amen
