Prayer of the Day

Seventh Week of Easter

May 11th, 2016
"May they be one with us." John 17 : 11

Who could possibly live alone in this world? We need each other! We were made for one another.  Why?   Others help me to be what I can be; in my oneness and totality.  The Lord of all invites us to see others through His eyes; through His experiences.  He invites us to see life through him. The Lord knew how to be humble, tough, compassionate, loving and merciful.  He was perfectly one and total.  “One”, for there was no sin in Him.  “Total”, because He was truly God and truly man.  Without God I will reduce my life to my state of being, and I will see the world as “one gigantic struggle” if I am going through struggles myself.   Christ went through struggle and loss and yet, he was able to say, and say it convincingly, “Be at peace.  I have conquered the world.”


Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Amen
