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 to remind me just how much participation I should have in the health of my own Life. I should make the first move and come to You asking for guidance and assistance, then act upon that guidance and assistance. It's no secret to You, or me, the vice or weakness that I give into that slows me down and takes me off my spiritual progression path and keeps me from carrying out the mission that You purposed for me to do. Father, make me as purposeful as You intended me to be through shear mental and spiritual awareness. My mind (mentally) and my heart (spiritually) need to be in sync at all times and always considering if my actions would have Your stamp of approval. Thank You so much for this awareness today about my vices and weaknesses. While it is easy to recognize the vice and weakness of others, it is a whole other thing to recognize my own, admit it to myself and then admit to You. Thank 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
28 And when He came to the other side, to the country of the Gadarenes, two demoniacs met Him, coming out of the tombs, so fierce that no one could pass that way.
29 And behold, they cried out, "What have you to do with us, O Son of God? Have you come here to torment us before the time?"
30 Now a herd of many swine was feeding at some distance from them.
31 And the demons begged Him, "If you cast us out, send us away into the herd of swine."
32 And He said to them, "Go." So they came out and went into the swine; and behold, the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the sea, and perished in the waters.
33 The herdsmen fled, and going into the city they told everything, and what had happened to the demoniacs.
34 And behold, all the city came out to meet Jesus; and when they saw Him, they begged Him to leave their neighborhood.
