Today’s Scripture

At the Last Supper Jesus gazed at the odd group he had gathered around him and spoke from his heart: ‘You are my friends!’
‘This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. I do not call you servants any longer, because the servant does not know what the master is doing; but I have called you friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from my Father. You did not choose me but I chose you. And I appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask him in my name. I am giving you these commands so that you may love one another.
(John 15:12-17 NRSV)

Lord work on my heart until it becomes like your Sacred Heart.
Give me hope.

I ask you to grant my special request during this novena

If what I ask is not for my own good and the good of others,
grant me what will most help
to build up your kingdom of justice, love and peace.
I make this prayer with confidence in your love.
