The Lord Is My Chef Breakfast Recipe, Monday, Easter Wk. III, 06 May 2019
Praise and glory to you O Lord Jesus Christ!
Thank you for this gift of Monday. Thank you for bringing us here in your birthplace and place of death as well.
How ironic and tragic, Lord.
As we arrived here in Bethlehem, fighting erupted anew at Gaza Strip, with rocket attacks reportedly killing and injuring undetermined people yet.
Fightings continue to this very moment and thank you for being far from it.
Lord, it is the most baffling mystery in life: your land is the land where peace remains elusive. And maybe because our hearts have always been far from you.
Like the people who spread lies against Stephen and the people who came looking for you for more food.
We always have our hearts filled with our very selves but never with you.
Let us be your John the Baptist in this time, one who prepares your coming by preaching and living peace. Amen.
