The Lord Is My Chef Daily Recipe for the Soul by Fr. Nicanor F. Lalog II Monday in Thirtieth Week in Ordinary Time, Year I, 30 October 2023 Romans 8:12-17 <*((((>< + ><))))*> Luke 13:10-17
God our Father, it is again elections day in our country when we give to Caesar what is due to Caesar but let us not forget to give what is due to you, our Lord and God which is our heart, our soul, our mind. Let us live in the Spirit your Son Jesus Christ had given us so that we live in solidarity with you not in solidarity with old humanity of sin St. Paul told the Romans (Romans 8:12-17).
Like that bent woman healed by Jesus in the gospel today, let us stand straight for what is right and true, good and holy; teach us to live in the Holy Spirit as your true children also heirs of the kingdom of heaven empowered by your Spirit as we strive to build a more humane and just society in this imperfect world. Let our love for you O God, flow in our love for one another and for our country by putting into office men and women who are selfless, not selfish; honorable and just, honest and true who will pursue what is good for everyone especially the weak and the poor. Amen.
