Today’s Scripture

Once Jesus cured a man on the Sabbath and he was criticised. He replied that he was only doing what he saw his Father doing.
Jesus said to them, ‘Very truly, I tell you, the Son can do nothing on his own, but only what he sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, the Son does likewise. The Father loves the Son and shows him all that he himself is doing; and he will show him greater works than these, so that you will be astonished. Indeed, just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, so also the Son gives life to whomsoever he wishes. The Father judges no one but has given all judgement to the Son.’

( John 5:19-22 NRSV)

Reflection for the Sixth Day

Cynically a writer thought that God must get bored with nothing to do all day. He could not imagine God being so involved in the lives of his people, God getting his hands dirty. St Ignatius said God labours constantly, but the word ‘labour’ here means to struggle, sweat and strain up to your knees in muck! Well the crucifixion is a good example of it.

Today’s Prayer

Lord, thank you for being so involved in our world, for bringing hope. Help me to see your hands at work in my days. Grant that all I do and all that I suffer may work with you to help and encourage all those in need of your love and compassion.

Daily Invocation

Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in you.

Novena Prayer

You can use the novena prayer below or open your personalised novena prayer.

Lord work on my heart
until it becomes like your Sacred Heart.
Give me hope.
Then I can love you and all my sisters and brothers
with the respect, compassion, and forgiveness
that you have for everyone.
I ask this in your name.

I ask you to grant
my special request during this novena
(here mention your intention).

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.
