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 reminds me of how close-minded I can be toward others thoughts, ideas and opinions but yet I expect and sometimes require others to be open-minded to my thoughts, ideas and opinions. It's hard to believe that even someone like Jesus, with so much wisdom and gentleness, could not convince everyone to understand His message, so what makes me think that I can convince everyone of what I'm saying. I understand how close-minded others can be, but more importantly, I understand how close-minded I can be. Thank You for this sharp reflection of myself.
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
16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear.
17 Truly, I say to you, many prophets and righteous men longed to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.
The Gospel of the Lord
Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ
