How Many Times
How many times Lord have I persecuted you without thinking?
Perhaps it was in the grudge that I held against a brother or sister, a co-worker, a neighbor or a spouse; the sin of pride can run so deep.
Perhaps it was the negative thought about another that I shared with someone else, leading them into the pit of sin with me.
Perhaps it was the time that I did not speak out the truth, but instead took the wide road of comfort, choosing to be liked rather than despised by those around me.
Lord, as you sent Ananias to Saul to lay hands on him that he would regain his sight,
Send your spirit to me that the scales may fall from my eyes and I may regain my sight.
“My Son suffers very much because men do not want to be reconciled. They have not listened to me. Be converted. Be reconciled.” Message from the BVM 10-15-83
Praise the Lord, all you nations; glorify him, all you peoples.
For steadfast is his kindness toward us, and the fidelity of the Lord endures forever. Psalm 117
