The Lord God called to Adam and asked him, “Where are you?”Genesis 3:9
Praise and glory to you, O God our loving Father! Until now, you never stop from calling us, asking us like Adam after the Fall, "Where are you?"
On this Memorial of Our Lady of Lourdes which is also the World Day of the Sick we come to you, presenting ourselves before you, sinful and sorrowful, weak and very sick, hurt and aching inside, lost and searching for meaning in this life.
Have mercy on us, dear God our Father; your Son Jesus Christ came to look for us to bring us closer to you by giving us his very self as food and drink in this journey of life.
Make us stop from hiding from you, from running away from you; let us stop to be with you, to be healed, to be consoled, and most of all, to be restored in you in Christ Jesus with Mary our Mother, the Immaculate Conception. Amen.
