Thank You, God our Father in giving us St. Anthony of Padua who is renowned in interceding for anything that is lost – perhaps, including lost faith in You, lost values and lost selves. So many times, we are like the Israelites in our first reading today who are lost in our faith in You. Like them, we have become “wishy-washy” in following and trusting You, relying more with the modern Baals of wealth and fame.
We are so lost with the worldly things that we have become callous and insensitive with the plight of the poor and the suffering among us. Help us to find our way back to you, Father, through Your Son Jesus Christ who is the fulfillment of the laws and the prophets. Amen.
St. Anthony of Padua, pray for us! Fr. Nicanor F. Lalog II,Parokya ni San Juan Apostol at Ebanghelista, Gov. F. Halili Ave., Bagbaguin, Sta. Maria,Bulacan 3022.
