Father of Mysterious Ways, we love you and praise you the new day. Though there are things that you showed to us which are not easy to understand now, we believe and are convinced that they are true and real. All we need to do is to humble our pride and allow your Holy Spirit to soften our stony hearts and allow you to enter in. For indeed, without you, we can do nothing. So, help us and be patient with us. As we meditate the message of Jesus in the Gospel today, help us to enter more into the mystery of your Incarnation in Jesus, who is our true Bread and Life. Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

St. Rose Venerini, pray for us.

Fr. Edgar Benedi-an, OSM
