In the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Maybe today we can focus on random acts of kindness. Do a kind deed for someone just because it is a good thing to do. Don't ask for any praise or reward. Just act kindly to others.
Lord of wisdom, help us learn to love more so that we can:
Welcome others more,
And share more.
In Mark's Gospel we hear that:
A leper approached Jesus, fell to his knees, and pleaded, "Jesus, if you want to, you can make me whole again." Jesus had such deep feelings for the leper, he reached out and touched the man. "I want you to get better. Be whole again." At that moment, the disease left him.
The Gospel of the Lord, [Response: Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ]
You helped the leper become whole again.
You want us to become whole and happy too.
Give us the wisdom to find those things that stop us from being whole:
Times when we lie, hurt others, refuse to help, and when we do not forgive others.
Jesus, forgive me as I forgive others and help me to love more so that I can do more for you.
Looking for wholeness, we continue our day in the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
