Acts of the Apostles 20:28-38 ><)))*> 000 + 000 <*(((>< John 17:11-19
What a true and great friend we have in you, O Lord Jesus Christ! You are not only faithful and loving to us but most of all, so true to us that you pray for us that the Father may always keep up.
Every day we pray to you asking for so many things because you are life yourself.
We pray for our family and friends because we love them, and you surely love them too.
And here you are, dearest Jesus, praying for us to the Father!
Thank you so much for thinking of us always.
Forgive us Jesus for the many times we have turned away from you, when we have refused to love you in others.
Enlighten our minds and our hearts, Lord, about your prayer consecrating us in the truth, the word of the Father, when you are in fact, the Word who became flesh.
Grant us the grace to be like St. Paul in the first reading who can sincerely proclaim to everyone his fidelity to your words and mission that was attested with the deep love of the presbyters of Ephesus who were deeply saddened when he bid them goodbye.
In this time of COVID-19 when life is so uncertain with so many people dying, may we give some precious moments of prayer and reflection with the life you have gifted us, you always prayed for.
Give us the courage to examine the kind of life we are leading, if we can have the sincerity of St. Paul in boldly declaring how we have lived and toiled among others.
Pray harder for us, dear Jesus that we may be always one with you in the Father and the Holy Spirit through others. Amen.
