WITH JESUS IN THE MORNING
The week started yesterday in the strength of the Risen Jesus. Yes, from Jesus emanates a force, that of the Resurrection. This month, the Pope's Worldwide Prayer Network turns to the Church in China, inhabited by the strength of the risen Jesus. Today the Gospel of St. John relates his second miracle: a child, the son of a royal officer, has recovered his health; his father "believed and all his house" (John 4:53). He trusted. Throughout this day, like this man, I would like to cultivate trust and fidelity, Lord, and put my faith in you. Lord, you precede me, please pass in front, I want to follow you. Heart of Jesus, I trust in you.
ĐGH Phanxicô đã khôi phục lại hoàn toàn mối dây hiệp thông trọn vẹn với Rô-ma của bảy vị Giám Mục ở Trung Quốc, đã được phong chức mà không có ủy nhiệm thư của Tòa Thánh.
Lạy Chúa, như ĐTC đã yêu cầu, xin cho họ có thể "bày tỏ những cử chỉ cụ thể và hữu hình sự hiệp nhất với Tòa Thánh và với Giáo Hội hoàn vũ, và xin cho họ "giữ được lòng trung thành bất chấp những khó khăn".
WITH JESUS DURING A DAY
Pope Francis reinstated in full communion with Rome seven Bishops of China, ordained without pontifical mandate. We invoke you, Lord, so that they can, as the Holy Father asks them, "express by concrete and visible gestures, the unity rediscovered with the Apostolic See and with the Churches spread throughout the world, and ‘keep them faithful despite the difficulties.’”
WITH JESUS IN THE NIGHT
Give thanks to God for the day that ends. Throughout your day, the Father calls to your heart in the small details and he wants you to listen and follow him. Do you recognize the presence of the Lord in what you experience? How do you respond? Is there something you are grateful for? Is there a situation that you need to ask for forgiveness? Resolve to allow God’s presence to heal your heart tomorrow. Hail Mary...
