The Lord Is My Chef Daily Recipe for the Soul by Fr. Nicanor F. Lalog II Friday in the Third Week of Easter, 06 May 2022 Acts 9:1-20 ><))))*> + <*((((>< John 6:52-59
Our readings today, O God our Father, are very much alike with our situation these days: so many tensions, so many quarrels among friends and families due to elections on Monday.
Saul, still breathing murderous threats against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, that, if he should find any men or women who belonged to the Way, he might bring them back to Jerusalem in chains.Acts 9:1-2
The Jews quarreled among themselves…John 6:52
Only Jesus Christ your Son, our Lord can dispel all these negative feelings and disharmony if we can be humble like Paul and Ananias who prayed over him; "level up" our thoughts to higher realities in life, in spirituality so that we may realize the inner truth and beauty of Jesus our bread of life; how sad that in this highly advanced age and time, we can "shift" our thoughts to higher levels or advanced stages in terms of material things only like garnering most scores or sales or followers and other numbers that rarely speak about realities in life.
In this final stretch of the campaign period, remind us anew like Paul that we are all brothers and sisters in Christ, that whatever we do to one another, we do exactly to you, dear Jesus; open our minds and hearts to listen to your voice, Lord Jesus Christ on whom to vote this Monday based on your teachings of love and truth. Amen.
