Jesus encouraged everyone to be true to His Gospel at all times, not just for fleeting moments.
He said to his disciples, “You also must be ready because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him”. (Luke 12:40)
If we were packets of food on a supermarket shelf, we would already know our ‘Expiry Date’. But we are not, we are much more important!
Lord Jesus, my prayers are an expression of my love for You; “We were born to love, we live to love and we will die to love still more”. (St Joseph Cafasso)
Prayer: Most Sacred Heart of Jesus (From Akita Prayer)
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus,
truly present in the Holy Eucharist,
I consecrate my body and soul
to be entirely one with Your Heart.
Receive this humble offering of myself.
Use me as You will for the glory of the Father
and salvation of souls.
Most Holy Mother of God,
never let me be separated from Your Divine Son.
Defend and protect me as Your special child. Amen.
