The Lord Is My Chef Breakfast Receipe for the Soul, Tuesday Easter Wk. III, 07 May
The crowd said to Jesus: “What sign can you do, that we may see and believe in you? What can you do?” (Jn.6:30)
Thank you Lord Jesus in bringing us here to your Holy Land, for seeing the places you have visited to preach and to heal. Most of all in being one of us to bring the Father closest to us.
Long before we have come – and douted God – you have been here. Everything was created in you, with you.
When I look at the barren desert and wilderness with old cities and oases still there, the more I see your signs of presence.
You are life, Lord.
Problem is when we destroy nature rather than enhance it like the farmlands here in the Dead Sea area.
Worst of all Lord when we hide you from the people because of the elaborate designs of our churches that have become so kitschy or baduy.
Teach us to appreciate your noble simplicity and beauty like the many churches here in the Holy Land.
Teach us priests especially to keep in mind your church is your house of prayer and encounter, not of show and comfort.
Let us decrease so that you will increase! Amen.
