Lord Jesus Christ, I come to you in darkness, desolate and sad with so much pains and fears. And anger.

You are the only one I can turn to, Lord.

You alone are the one who can heal me and console me.

You alone can fill me with life and love.

Like the psalmist, it is only in you, O Lord, can I find peace.

Help me to respond to St. Paul’s call today:

Brothers and sisters: Let love be sincere; hate what is evil, hold on to what is good; love one another with mutual affection; anticipate one another in showing honor.

Romans 12:9-10

How can our love be sincere and not hate evil or even show honor to those who continue to do evil against us?

O sweet Jesus, give us the courage to come to your “banquet”; enable us to let go of our many excuses like those you have invited to your banquet.

It is only in communing in you, in being with you can our love be sincere, Lord, when we are able to disarm ourselves of our doubts and anxieties, fears and hatred to receive you and share you with others. Amen.
