Acts of the Apostles 13:13-25 <*(((>< ++0++ ><)))*> John 13:16-20
Thank you, O Lord, for the gift of remembering, of not simply recalling the past but even the joy or pain of experiencing them again. Most of all, of learning their lessons that have made us what we are today.
In this time of quarantine when we have so many time spent in remembering our past, our family and friends, may we also remember your saving grace to us like St. Paul at the synagogue of Antioch in Pisidia.
Help us to remember – that is, to make you a part of the present again of which re + member is all about.
May we never live like what we have done before this pandemic began when we thought we can lead our lives without you.
As we remember your goodness, your coming to us in your Son Jesus Christ who suffered and died like us, may we keep in mind that everything is in your hand, in your power and control. Not ours.
Grant, O Lord, that in re + membering your saving action to us, your great love for each one of us, may we continue to lovingly serve one another in your name. Amen.
