September 12, 2010, 24th Sunday in Ordinary Time
"I will Rise and Go To My Father." (Responsorial Psalm)
Exodus 32:7-11, 13-14
Gospel of Luke 15:1-32
REFLECTION: The first reading for Sunday (Exodus 32:7-11, 13-14) presents us with the following situation: the people of Israel have turned away from the Lord and are worshipping false gods. Moses steps forward to intercede. Jesus does the same for us. He stands continually before the Father, asking mercy and forgiveness for us.
PRAYER: Loving Lord, we place before you our needs and those of our brothers and sisters. Present them for us to your Father and ours. Amen.
Take time for meditation today. In what way is God asking you to come closer to him in your life?
During this month the Church celebrates the feasts of the Exultation of the Cross and Our Lady of Sorrows. Pray the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary today for world peace.
Think of your needs. Then call a friend or relative who may need to share some quality moments with you.
Do some charitable act today to show your ability to be an advocate for the needy.
Pray today for those things that you hope Jesus will offer to the Father on your behalf. Tell him your needs.
In the quiet of your heart, bring to mind what it is you most need forgiveness for. Pray the great prayer of forgiveness, the Our Father.
PRAYER: Loving Lord, we place before you our needs and those of our brothers and sisters. Present them for us to your Father and ours. We pray this with confidence and trust. Amen.
