1 John 4:11-18///Mark 6:45-52

            God our loving Father, we praise and thank you in giving us your Son Jesus Christ who taught us and showed us everything about love.  He is your love, Father, as He is love.  Indeed, “no one has ever seen You.  Yet if we love one another in Christ, You remain in us and Your love is brought to perfection in us” (1 Jn. 4:12)

            Our love is always imperfect.  Only You can love us perfectly.  Remind us always this truth so we stop looking for perfect love among us.  Instead, keep us loving one another even in the darkness of fears and doubts of Your presence when we are so afraid we would lose everything and everyone, when we are afraid of being naked and hungry, when we are afraid of not being loved and forgiven.  Let us always find Jesus Your Son amid the storms of life, like the Black Nazarene carrying His Cross, speaking to us, “Take courage, it is I, do not be afraid!” (Mk. 6:50).  AMEN.  Fr.Nicanor F. Lalog II, Parokya ng San Juan Apostol at Ebanghelista, Gov. F. Halili Ave., Bagbaguin, Sta. Maria, Bulacan.
