Prayer to See Love Anew

Breakfast Recipe-Prayer, Monday
19 November 2018, Week XXXIII, Year II
Revelation 1: 1-4; 2:1-5///Luke 18:35-43

            Praise and thanksgiving to you O God, loving and merciful Father!

            Thank for making me realize on this beautiful Monday that doing so many good things are not enough if there is no love.  So many times I am blinded by the ministry, by the work to be done, by the people to be helped out, even by you, my God, that I do so many things for you without any love at all.

            I’m sorry, Lord.  There are times that ministry and service, even the very life of holiness become a task or a work to be done and completed, empty of any love at all.  There are many times I see myself becoming like the Ephesians in St. John’s vision filled with energy and vigor in the mission but empty of love.

           Heal my blindness, O Lord!  Let me regain not only my sight to see things clearly but to see you most especially in your essence, in love.  Let me see love in everything I do, love in the people I meet and serve.  Let me see, O Lord that love you have filled me with so much that I have forgotten and even refused to share sometimes.  AMEN. Fr. Nicanor F. Lalog II, Parokya ng San Juan Apostol at Ebanghelista, Gov. F. Halili Ave., Bagbaguin, Sta. Maria, Bulacan 3022.
