Birth Of John The Baptist (2)

Extract:

Sign: No Talking

When Elizabeth gave birth to a son, as promised by an Angel, her neighbourhood rejoiced.

When Zechariah wrote on a tablet, “His name is John”, his speech was restored.

When the news spread, reaching the “entire hill country of Judea”, people talked and wondered, “What then will this child be? For the Lord’s hand was indeed with him”. (Luke 1: 57-66)

Thought

Regardless of our personal age, God has a plan for us!

Reflection

Lord Jesus, you restored hearing to the deaf, sight to the blind and healed numerous other illnesses. Open my eyes to the many blessings you have bestowed on me and grant me the strength to keep going. Amen

Prayer: Sweet Jesus

Sweet Jesus, Body and Blood most Holy,
be the delight and pleasure of my soul,
my strength and salvation in all temptations,
my joy and peace in every trial,
my light and guide in every word and deed,
and my final protector in death. Amen.
