“Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

Lord Jesus,

You taught me today to remember the main course of your teaching, TO LOVE, God and my neighbor. Have I been carrying this teaching wholeheartedly? Or have I been doing one and abandoning the other? I ask you today, Lord Jesus, to give me the grace that I need to “love God, with all my heart, with all my being, with all my strength, and with all my mind, and to love my neighbors as myself.” The world I live in right now needs many good Samaritans; with your grace, let me be one of them. Allow me to treat my neighbors with mercy. Let me bring your healing power to them that their pain (spiritually, mentally, psychologically, and emotionally) may be healed. Allow me Lord, to be your instrument of healing to many of my neighbors who fall ill to different situations in their lives. This I ask you, for you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever.


Enjoy the view from The Grotto Plaza, looking up at the towering evergreens and the majestic cliff and grotto.
