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 below serves as an eye opening reminder that You are my solid working belief system and the One I should always keep my eyes focused on is Your Son Jesus. That means keeping both of my eyes focused on Him and never allowing one eye to wander to anything that is not a reflection of Your Truth and Love. We live in a time where celebrity adoration and materialism have become the norm at any cost. It seems more and more these days that a solid working belief system is a thing of the past and the mere mention of Your Son Jesus and His Good works gets less attention and respect than a celebrity or politician. Father, my Faith in You and Your Son is so strong that I will not be deceived and I will not be tricked simply because I choose to be awake and watchful at all times and because I desire to have You in and around my Life more than anything else in this world. YOU really do mean 'the world' to me.
Through Jesus Christ's Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face. ~Amen
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke
5 While some people were speaking about how the temple was adorned with costly stones and votive offerings, He said,
6 "All that you see here--the days will come when there will not be left a stone upon another stone that will not be thrown down."
7 Then they asked Him, "Teacher, when will this happen? And what sign will there be when all these things are about to happen?"
8 He answered, "See that you not be deceived, for many will come in my name, saying, 'I am he,' and 'The time has come.' Do not follow them!
9 When you hear of wars and insurrections, do not be terrified; for such things must happen first, but it will not immediately be the end."
10 Then He said to them, "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.
11 There will be powerful earthquakes, famines, and plagues from place to place; and awesome sights and mighty signs will come from the sky."

Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ
