Thank you, dear Jesus, in leading us always in life, in teaching us how to pray like you by being one with our Father; empower us, O Lord, to be firm in calling God our Father by being faithful and true to your one teaching, one calling, one Body that includes everyone especially the poor and suffering.
Make us mindful always of the many occasions we try pleasing everyone, like St. Peter whom St. Paul opposed "to his face" when he disguised of not hurting the feelings of some believers by following the ways of former Jews that only those circumcised would be saved; so often, in our adoption of many defense mechanisms and pretexts to hide our indecision in standing for Christ, that is when we actually mislead others from you, Jesus!
But when I saw that they were not on the right road in line with the truth of the Gospel, I said to Cephas in front of all, “If you, though a Jew, are living like a Gentile and not like a Jew, how can you compel the Gentiles to live like Jews?”Galatians 2:14
Enlighten our minds and our hearts through the Holy Spirit to ensure that it is only you, Jesus, always you, Jesus whom we share in everything we say and do. Amen.
O most holy St. Sr. Faustina, with whom the Lord revealed his Divine Mercy, pray for us to be faithful and convinced and consistent in Christ Jesus our Divine Mercy. Amen.
