In the news
Jesus said: “I am the good shepherd. A good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. (Jn 10:11-18)
The sign of the cross is often reduced to a good-luck charm- around our necks or over our body when we begin a test. The Cross of Jesus Christ does not promise us success, health, or pleasure. The Cross only promises us that Jesus will be with us, no matter how badly we suffer, no matter how badly we fail, and no matter how horribly we feel. Jesus said, “Behold I am with you always until the end of the age.” It is through His Cross that Jesus is with us- that is the meaning of the Cross and that is the meaning of our Christian faith.
We pause and remember that we are always and everywhere in the presence of the Holy One Who pitched His tent among us and loves us with an everlasting love. We are His people and He is our God.
In the name of GOD the FATHER Who is HOLY.
In the name of the SON Who is REDEEMER and in the name of the SPIRIT Who invites us to grow in grace and life; all honor and glory, praise and thanksgiving be Yours, now and forever.
O Lord, hear our prayer
and let our cry come to You.
Hide not Your face from us
in the day of our distress.
Incline Your ear to us;
in the day when we call,
answer us speedily.
O Lord, we put our trust in You.
Let us not be put to shame.
