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 reflect on who or what sustains me. When I think of sustain, it causes me to reflect on what I am striving to obtain and where I need to abstain. So what sustains me? Both obtain and abstain have everything to do with what I choose to sustain me. Pushing aside my physical desires since they are simply a temporary fix, I turn directly toward my spiritual desires and I choose YOU to sustain me. You are my Sustenance, my Nourisment and my Fix. I choose 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 John
18 "If the world hates you, know that it has hated Me before it hated you.
19 If you were of the world, the world would Love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.
20 Remember the word that I said to you, `A servant is not greater than his master.' If they persecuted Me, they will persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also.
21 But all this they will do to you on My account, because they do not know Him who sent Me.
The Gospel of the Lord
Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ
