TODAY’S WORD…and PRAYER

.

Now the Lord is the Spirit,

and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

.

And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory,

are being transformed into His image with ever-increasing glory,

which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

.

– 2 Corinthians 3:17-18 (NIV)

.

REFLECTION…

.

Christian freedom

means accepting God’s commandments

as children who strive to do what pleases our Father God.

.

As we lovingly contemplate the Lord in faith,

we reflect the splendour of Christ in our lives.

.

And, as we gladly allow the influence of grace on our souls,

the more we become identified with Christ

…and the more we radiate Him.

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Jesus, my Lord, my God,

Light of my heart,

thank You for Your Spirit of freedom.

.

Transform me, O Lord,

and make me more like You.

.

Give me more of You,

so much more of You,

You’re all I want and need,

hear me as I plead.

.

Please take more of me,

so much more of me,

till it’s no longer I,

but You who lives in me.

.

Lord, give me more of You!

…..

YEAR OF FAITH 2012-2013

FROM THE CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH…

.

It remains for the holy people to struggle, with grace from on high,

to obtain the good things God promises.

.

In order to possess and contemplate God,

Christ’s faithful mortify their cravings

and, with the grace of God,

prevail over the seductions of pleasure and power.

.

[CCC 2549]
