The Lord Is My Chef Breakfast Recipe for the Soul

Colossians 1:24-2:3 ><)))*> ><)))*> ><)))*> Luke 6:6-11
What a wonderful way to start the week of work and school with you, O Lord Jesus Christ dwelling in me! St. Paul perfectly said it in today’s first reading:
“God chose to make known the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; it is Christ in you, the hope for glory.”Colossians 1:27
Inspire me, Jesus, like St. Paul not to be disheartened by suffering, to be filled with passion in proclaiming your gospel not only in words but most of all in deeds. Take away all the hurts and pains, insecurities and doubts within me that prevent you from reigning in me.
Remind me, Jesus, that your gospel is not a philosophy nor a collection of doctrines or of ethics but your very person so that in preaching and witnessing your gospel, I may lead others to a personal encounter with you, O Lord.
Dwell in me, Jesus Christ, and let me do something good today like what you did to the man with a withered hand on a sabbath day. Amen.
