The Lord Is My Chef Daily Recipe for the Soul by Fr. Nicanor F. Lalog II Wednesday in the Twenty-Ninth Week of Ordinary Time, Year I, 25 October 2023 Romans 6:12-18 ><]]]]'> + <'[[[[>< Luke 12:39-48
Be patient with us, Lord Jesus Christ, when until now we feel so exclusive and so different from the rest; so many times we are like Peter in today's gospel asking, "Lord, is this parable meant for us or for everyone?" (Luke 12:41)
Every time we separate ourselves from others, every time we put on that feeling of being different from others; whenever we find alibis and excuses, then we are still slaves of sin.
Purify us, dear Jesus; make us docile and obedient to you our only Lord and Master in whom we find true peace and freedom from sin and weakness of flesh; let us listen more intently to your voice whispered in silence so we may give our total selves to you because our help, our life, our meaning are found only in you who made heaven and earth! Amen.
