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 is very similar to a reading from the Gospel of Luke (Luke 9:22-26), only the last line of today's reading Matthew speaks of repayment, whereas Luke spoke of acknowledgment. I wondered, if You were to repay me for the things I have done in this Life, what would that repayment look like. Would I have earned the repayment that I claim to seek and work toward or would I earn a repayment that might blindside me if I do not open my eyes. Thank You for this simple, yet powerful awareness as I continue to seek Your Guidance and Will.
Through Jesus Christ's Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face. ~Amen
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
24 Then Jesus told His disciples, "If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.
25 For whoever would save his Life will lose it, and whoever loses his Life for my sake will find it.
26 For what will it profit a man, if he gains the whole world and forfeits his Life? Or what shall a man give in return for his Life?
27 For the Son of man is to come with His angels in the glory of His Father, and then He will repay every man for what he has done."
The Gospel of the Lord
Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ
