Each month, Living with Christ gives you everything you need to prepare for Mass, to participate in Mass, and to reflect on the experience.

Daily Prayer

Friday, April 18, 2014

For this I came into the world.

Father, as I pray over
the Passion of your Son,
Help me to pause in awe
of a love so intense
that it would die
for the beloved,
and so strong that
not even death
could stop it.

Father, nothing in the world
appears to have changed,
and yet, because of
what Jesus did,
faith shows me a world
of holiness and redemption
where sinners can be forgiven,
wounds can be healed,
hopes can be fulfilled,
and the dead can be raised to life.

Because of what Jesus
did on this day,
we now have a great high priest
offering an eternal liturgy
of thanks and praise to you
and interceding for
the life of the world.

Thank you, Father,
for the baptism
that gives me a share
in Christ’s life and worship.
And thank you for giving me
the opportunity, through Jesus,
to offer that worship in
every moment of my life,
in all my words and deeds.

Today, Father, when I remember
what Christ has done,
let me also remember
who I am--who we all are--
because of it.
And help me to never stop
giving you my thanks and praise!

For a prayer for today from St. Paul of the Cross, see page 5 in the Holy Week 2014 issue of Living with Christ.
