“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Matthew 18:20

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“For where two or three are gathered in My name,

there am I in the midst of them.”

.

– Matthew 18:20 (RSV)

.

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

St. Thomas Aquinas comments that

“love is inconceivable if there is only one person:

it implies the presence of two or more.”

.

And so it is that when Christians meet together in the name of Christ for the purpose of prayer:

our Lord is present among them,

faithfully and gladly listening to their unanimous prayer.

.

This is why communal prayer can be so uplifting, holy and inspiring – because of Christ’s presence.

If only we would take the Lord’s words more seriously

and realise that He is always true to His promises.

.

A belief in Christ’s reassurance and promises

would change our attitudes towards daily prayers said as a family,

including grace at meals, morning and night prayers, the rosary…

.

Jesus’ promise is, therefore, very encouraging

also to those who meet regularly as a group of believers, to pray and to give praise to God.

.

What could be more wonderful than calling upon the Lord

and having Him present as we share His love, joy, peace and Good News!

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

“Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est.” – “Where charity and love resides, there God is.”

.

– Holy Thursday liturgy

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Lord Jesus, Your promises are true!

Bring me, Lord, to gladly praise and worship You in company,

that I may exult in Your glorious presence.
