The Lord Is My Chef Daily Recipe for the Soul by Fr. Nicanor F. Lalog II Thursday in the Seventh Week of Easter, 25 May 2023 Acts 22:30, 23:6-11 ><))))*> + <*((((>< John 17:20-26
How wonderful and so touching, Lord Jesus, for you to call us a gift from the Father.
“Father, they are your gift to me. I wish that where I am they also be with me, that they may see my glory that you gave me, because you loved me before the foundation of the world.”
Help me keep, dear Jesus, that being of a gift to you from the Father by being a witness of your glory which is standing by your side at the Cross like St. Paul whom you have called "to bear witness to you in Jerusalem and in Rome" (Acts 23:11).
May we always remember this truth, our being a gift to you dear Jesus, so that in moments we feel so overburdened, when we are losing hope, when we feel like giving up, we may forge on and persevere in bearing witness to your Cross of suffering so that eventually be one in your glorious Resurrection. Amen.
