The Lord Is My Chef Breakfast Recipe for the Soul by Fr. Nicanor F. Lalog II
Monday, Week XIV, Year I in Ordinary Time, 05 July 2021
Genesis 28:10-22 ><)))'>+><)))'>+><)))'> Matthew 9:18-26
When Jacob awoke from his sleep,
"Truly, the Lord is in this spot,
although I did not know it!"
In solemn wonder he cried out:
"How awesome is this shrine!
This is nothing else but an abode of God,
and that is the gateway to heaven!"
Surprise us, O Lord, today
like Jacob after his dream.
Gift us with the sense of
wonder and awe,
open ourselves to realize
and experience your presence;
teach our hearts and minds
to be observant and sensitive
of your coming in Jesus Christ
who is filled with life and joy
from whom flows healing
and fullness of life.
We pray, dear God
for the gift of faith
so we may be surprised again
with the usual things in life
like the tassel of the cloak of Jesus;
help us imitate that
so convinced of
Christ's extraordinary powers
present in the most ordinary
happening daily if we believe
then we can see clearly your majesty!

Thank you Fr. Nick for today’s recipe. I just want to say that everyday Jesus’ surprises me because I still get to read your blogs, our worlds are far too different yet every single day I still get to enjoy your writing. Everyday He surprises me through you.
