Prayers and Actions for Tuesday, Oct 12
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.
Tuesday: Luke 11:37 – 41. "Now you Pharisees clean the outside of the cup and of the dish, but inside you are full of greed and wickedness." What specific ways are offered to you in the parish to help you purify, clarify, lift higher the attitudes and values in your heart?
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.
