23rd March – Except through me

We enter into the second week of social distancing, and we entrust our lives and the lives of those around us to Jesus. We hope that these 15 minutes together with Christ are helping you grow deeper in intimacy with God, whilst allowing Him to give you the gift of his peace in these difficult situations.

We ask you to pray for all those who are suffering at the moment and those who are on the health workers fighting this pandemic.

  • Find a suitable place where you can sit and be calm. 
  • Close your eyes for a few moments and listen to the sounds surrounding you, be aware of your posture and make yourself present to enter into a moment of intimacy with Jesus.
  • Make the sign of the cross and remain for a few more moments in silence. TIP: If it helps you to concentrate and to bring yourself before Jesus in prayer, play a song or two of praise. If you do not have any specific song, we suggest this song.

John 14 1:7 

 

Jesus the Way to the Father

‘Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house there are many dwelling-places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, so that where I am, there you may be also. And you know the way to the place where I am going.’ Thomas said to him, ‘Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?’ Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you know me, you will know my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him.

      • I am the way, the truth and the life.
        • Jesus I do not always understand or feel you, please show me who you are. 
        • What is the new way you are calling me to? 
        • What is the truth you are telling me about?
        • What is this life that you are giving me?
      • Ask Jesus for the grace to have faith even when you do not understand or see.
        •  Jesus I believe and trust in you. 
      • Allow a moment of silence and try to listen to what God wants to tell you today. We suggest using a notebook to write some short points. 
      • Ask Mary to guide you to her son Jesus and intercede for others. Recite a Hail Mary. 
        • What are the requests I wish to bring to God through Mary? For whom will I intercede?
      • Close this moment of prayer by thanking God for this moment of intimacy together. 
        • Grant us Jesus your gift of love. 
      • Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.   – Make the sign of the cross.

The Rosary will be prayed every day at 5:30pm and live-streamed on TVM2, Newsbook & Church.mt, from the Curia’s chapel. We encourage you all to join us in this prayer.
