Prayers and Actions for Monday, Oct 11
Reflecting on This Week's Gospels
Pray daily: Lord, you love me without bounds and you showed it. Teach me how to show you
that my love for you is without bounds.
Monday: Luke 11:29 – 32. "The queen of the South will rise...with the people of this generation and condemn them, because she came from the ends of the earth to listen to the wisdom of Solomon, and see, something greater than Solomon is here." What sacrifices do you make to hear the wisdom of Jesus? What chances are offered in your parish?
Living This Week's Gospels
As Christian: List what is offered in the parish to help you experience God (daily Mass, Reconciliation, study groups). Then list the reasons you do not use them more. Compare the values on both sides.
As Disciple: List the religious duties you perform faithfully. Underline those which are changing your attitudes and values.
As Prophet: Write "from the ends of the earth" on a card (see Monday) and do one thing each day to embody
As Priest: At daily Mass or at home offer yourself with Jesus lifted up on the cross for others. Then give life through love.
As King: Drop your pastor a note affirming one thing that says the parish is aiming at more than routine religion – or suggesting one thing he could do that would say this.
