Lord Jesus Christ, help me to be kind to one another, compassionate and forgiving as you have forgiven us (Eph.4:32); let me live in love by being true always to you in words and in deeds.
In this world and life saturated in media whose only concerns are profit and influence, let us not be deceived with its colorful displays of images, and most especially of talks and languages full of obscenities and curse, reducing persons into things who can be dispensed in the name of "human rights" and then portrayed as cool and progressive; worst, many of them claim to be your followers as Catholics.
Let no one deceive you with empty arguments, for because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the disobedient. So do not be associated with them. For you were once in darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light.Ephesians 5:6-8
Give me the courage, Lord, to stand for what is true and good like you in healing the crippled woman who was bent and incapable of standing erect; let me choose to do what is right and pleasing to you, doing justice to everyone, following your straight path of kindness and compassion for everyone especially the weak and powerless. Amen.
