Prayer of the Day

Second Week of Easter

April 13th, 2015
""What is born of the flesh is flesh and what is born of the Spirit is Spirit."" John 3 : 6

The terminology of the whole Gospel passage calls to mind the Christian Baptism,  the Sacrament of Initiation.  Nicodemus,  like many adult candidates for Baptism approaches Jesus with some knowledge and experience.  He at first recognises Jesus as a God-sent teacher known for the miracles He performs.  As a Pharisee he views heaven as something to be earned through faithful observance of the law and traditions.

Prayer Lord Jesus you are always with us, burning within our hearts. Sometimes we forget you are there. You conquered death in order to be with us forever. Lord hear us. Amen
