Friday of the Twenty Ninth Week of Ordinary Time

Every Little Prison

All can work for Me, the free man and the one suffering in prison. (Jesus) (May 24, 1963)

Today’s Readings: “Why do you not judge for yourselves what is right? If you are to go with your opponent before a magistrate, make an effort to settle the matter on the way; otherwise your opponent will turn you over to the judge, and the judge hand you over to the constable, and the constable throw you into prison. I say to you, you will not be released until you have paid the last penny.” (Luke 12)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, today’s Gospel speaks of seeing the signs of the times. Do we see You in our everyday lives? In our circumstances, in others, in those who need our help? Do we see You in everything or are we too distracted by the noise in our heads? Lord, so much of that noise is what keeps us in chains- resentments, unforgiveness, differences with others, stress and anxiety and our own failings and weaknesses. Are we ready to be free or are we content with every little prison that keeps us bound? Lord we can all work for You, in whatever circumstance we find ourselves. Help us always to see You passing by and to recognize the time of Your Visitation in our lives! (Luke 19:44).
