Praise and glory to you,
Lord Jesus Christ!
You never fail to surprise us
with your goodness and
generosity as your invisible hand
guides us through this life.

How wonderful that 
very often in life, 
we find fulfillment and
realization of our dreams
and plans in places we never
find conducive for any kind 
of success; but your invisible hand
proves us otherwise, like Paul 
finding rejection and resistance 
in the sophisticated city of Athens yesterday
only to find acceptance and affirmation 
in the seedy and immoral
city of Corinth where ironically
your gospel took roots!

Many times, Jesus,
we are baffled with your ways
and your words like your
apostles in the gospel today;
like them, we are so afraid 
to ask you even for clarifications
because we surely do not
know much!

There are times, Lord,
even the person we take for 
granted turn out to be the
one who would help us
in our needs.

Indeed, your invisible hand
is always present guiding us,
leading us Lord to green pastures,
to fulfillment; many times
your invisible hand pats our
backs and shoulders to comfort
and assure us; sometimes, 
your invisible hand spank
us, reprimanding us in times
we turn away from you;
let us remember that
whether you are patting our
shoulders or slapping us,
it is always your loving
and graceful 
invisible hand,
