God our loving Father, another week of work and studies is coming to a close. As we look forward to the weekend rest and recreation, may we not forget the many new things and new realizations we have learned and discovered this week about you.
The Lord Is My Chef Breakfast Recipe-Prayer

1 Corinthians 4:1-5///Luke 5:33-39
Let us accept the new meaning of fasting as well as the other new perspectives about you and your plans for us revealed in the coming of your Son Jesus Christ. Let us not be fixated with traditions and rituals, even beliefs that have made us complacent in our relationship with you. So many times in life we do not meet you in the present because we are always in the past, contented in holding on to that saying “old wine is good” (Lk.5:39) that we miss trying new wines that have new and stronger “kicks” so to speak.
Give us the grace like St. Paul of being a “servant of Christ and steward of the mysteries of God” (1Cor.4:1) by constantly examining our trustworthiness before you, cleansing and purifying our hearts for you alone. Amen.Fr. Nicanor F. Lalog II, Parokya ng San Juan Apostol at Ebanghelista, Gov. F. Halili Ave., Bagbaguin, Sta. Maria, Bulacan 3022.
