REFLECTION…

.

The Lord is

merciful,

compassionate,

slow to get angry,

filled with unfailing love,

good to everyone,

gracious in all He does

righteous in everything He does,

filled with kindness.

.

The Lord

showers compassion on all His creation,

always keeps His promises,

helps the fallen,

.

lifts those bent beneath their loads.

The Lord responds

to all those who believe in Him

and who invoke Him with humility, full of trust, and with love.

.

The Lord is close to all who call on Himin truth

The false, the skeptical, the impatient, the selfish and the proud

– these push the Lord away.

.

As St John of the Cross tells us,

“there is no better way

to be granted the petitions that we hold in our hearts,

than to put all the strength of our prayer into what is most pleasing to God;

for then, He will not only grant us what we ask – our salvation;

He will also give us what He sees we need

and what would be good for us,

even though we did not petition Him for it.”

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God,

have mercy on me, a sinner.

.

Dear Lord, in my love for You,

help me be unpretentious, full of trust,

patient and persevering, unselfish, and humble.

.

Lord, I yearn for, and glory in, Your nearness.

.

Stay with me, Lord, I need You by my side.
