For a more enriching experience,
go down on your knees to pray or take it one step further
and prostrate yourself (lay face down) on the floor while praying.
Father, today's reading causes me to take a strong look at my Life to see if I am living a more physical existence or a more spiritual existence. As a being who is both physical and spirit, sometimes I do live more physically than spiritually. Sometimes I am more concerned about the visible world, which I can see, rather than invisible world that I profess to believe. Thank You for this clear awareness that I need to work harder at allowing my spiritual being to animate and operate my physical being instead of vice versa, simply because I came from You first, before I was ever a physical body. Utilizing my spiritual self is my Life line and connection directly to You.
Through Jesus Christ's Most Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face, I thank You for this awareness. Amen~
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
24 "A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master;
25 it is enough for the disciple to be like his teacher, and the servant like his master. If they have called the master of the house Be-el'zebul, how much more will they malign those of his household.
26 So have no fear of them; for nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known.
27 What I tell you in the dark, utter in the Light; and what you hear whispered, proclaim upon the housetops.
28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father's will.
30 But even the hairs of your head are all numbered.
31 Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.
32 So every one who acknowledges Me before men, I also will acknowledge before My Father who is in heaven;
33 but whoever denies Me before men, I also will deny before My Father who is in heaven."
The Gospel of the Lord
Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ
