HAVE YOU BEEN OBEDIENT?

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today:

wisdom 091515

In the days when Christ was in the flesh, HE OFFERED PRAYERS AND SUPPLICATIONS WITH LOUD CRIES AND TEARS TO THE ONE WHO WAS ABLE TO SAVE HIM FROM DEATH, AND HE WAS HEARD BECAUSE OF HIS REVERENCE.  SON THOUGH HE WAS, HE LEARNED OBEDIENCE FROM WHAT HE SUFFERED; AND WHEN HE WAS MADE PERFECT, HE BECAME THE SOURCE OF ETERNAL SALVATION FOR ALL WHO OBEY HIM.

From the book of Hebrews 5: 7-9

+++

Reflections:

  1.  Do we still pray?
  2. How and to whom do we pray?
  3. If Jesus prayed to His Father, should we also be praying like Him?

Saint of the Day:

St. Valerian, pray for us.

Keep praying,

Brother Mo

PRAYER FOR A HAPPY DEATH

PRAYER FOR A HAPPY DEATH

by Corazon C. Aquino (Mother of Philippine Democracy)

Almighty God, most merciful Father

You alone know the time

You alone know the hour

You alone know the moment

When I shall breathe my last.

So, remind me each day,

most loving Father

To be the best that I can be.

To be humble, to be kind,

To be patient, to be true.

To embrace what is good,

To reject what is evil,

To adore only You.

When the final moment does come

Let not my loved ones grieve for long.

Let them comfort each other

And let them know how much happiness

They brought into my life.

Let them pray for me,

As I will continue to pray for them,

Hoping that they will always pray for each other.

Let them know that they made possible

Whatever good I offered to our world.

And let them realize that our separation

Is just for a short while

As we prepare for our reunion in eternity.

Our Father in heaven,

You alone are my hope

You alone are my salvation.

Thank you for your unconditional love.

BABBLE PRAYERS

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, June 18, 2015:

wisdom 061815

Jesus said to His disciples:

“In praying, DO NOT BABBLE LIKE THE PAGANS, WHO THINK THAT THEY WILL BE HEARD BECAUSE OF THEIR MANY WORDS.  Do not be like them.  YOUR FATHER KNOWS WHAT YOU NEED BEFORE YOU ASK HIM.

This is how you are to pray:  ‘OUR FATHER WHO ART IN HEAVEN, HALLOWED BY YOUR NAME, THY KINGDOM COME, THY WILL BE DONE, ON EARTH AS IN HEAVEN.  GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD; AND FORGIVE US OUR TRESPASSES, AS WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO TRESPASS AGAINST US; AND LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION, BUT DELIVER US FROM EVIL.’

‘If you forgive others their transgressions, your heavenly Father will forgive you.  BUT IF YOU DO NOT FORGIVE OTHERS, NEITHER WILL YOUR FATHER FORGIVE YOUR TRANSGRESSIONS.”

– From the Gospel of Matthew 6: 7-15

+++

Reflections:

*How do we pray?

*Do we love long prayers or short prayers?

*Do we still pray this very simple but profound prayer Jesus taught us?

*Have we really forgiven those who tresspassed against us?

+++

Saint of the Day:

St. Gregory Barbarigo, pray for us.

Refrain from babbling,

Brother Mo

WE ARE ONE

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, May 21, 2015:

wisdom 052115

Lifting up His eyes to heaven, Jesus prayed, saying:

“I PRAY NOT ONLY FOR THESE, BUT ALSO FOR THOSE WHO WILL BELIEVE IN ME THROUGH THEIR WORD, SO THAT THEY MAY ALL BE ONE, AS YOU, FATHER, ARE IN ME AND I IN YOU, THAT THEY ALSO MAY BE IN US, THAT THE WORLD MAY BELIEVE THAT YOU SENT ME.  And I have given them the glory you gave me, so that they may be one, AS WE ARE ONE, I in them and you in me, that they may be brought to perfection as one, that the world may know that you sent me, and that you loved them even as you loved me.

Father, they are your gift to me.  I wish that where I am they also may be with me, that they may see my glory that you gave me, because you loved me before the foundation of the world. Righteous Father, THE WORLD ALSO DOES NOT KNOW YOU, BUT I KNOW YOU, AND THEY KNOW THAT YOU SENT ME.  I made known to them your name and I will make it known, THAT THE LOVE WITH WHICH YOU LOVED ME MAY BE IN THEM AND I IN THEM.”

-From the Gospel of John 17: 20-26

+++

Reflections:

*Are we aware that Jesus prayed for us even before we were born?

*Are we aware that He made wishes too and that His wish is for us to be with Him and experience God’s glory?

*Are willing to be one with Him to make God known in all corners of the world?

Saint of the Day:

St. Eugene De Mazenod, pray for us.

He wants you to be part,

KEEP THEM FROM THE EVIL ONE

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, May 20, 2015:

wisdom 052015

Lifting up His eyes to heaven, Jesus prayed, saying:

Holy Father, keep them in your name that you have given me, so that they may be one just as we are one.  When I was with them I protected them in your name that you gave me, and guarded them, and none of them was lost except the son of destruction, in order that the scripture might be fulfilled.

But now I am coming to you, I speak this in the world so that they may share my joy completely.  I gave them your word, and the world hated them, because they do not belong to the world any more than I belong to the world.  I DO NOT ASK THAT YOU TAKE THEM OUT OF THE WORLD BUT THAT YOU KEEP THEM FROM THE EVIL ONE.  They do not belong to the world any more than I belong to the world.  Consecrate them in the truth.  Your word is truth.  As you sent me into the world, so I sent them into the world.  And I consecrate myself for them, so that they may be consecrated in truth.”

-From the Gospel of John 17:11-19

+++

Reflections:

*Jesus constantly prayed to the Father, how about us?

*Jesus constantly prayed for us, do we pray ourselves?

*Jesus prayed that we be kept from the evil one, how do we respond?

St. Bernardine of Siena, pray for us.
