Raising Up The Lowly

 Ninth Friday of
Ordinary Time (First Friday)

 O my Jesus, blessed be Your Holy Name by which I came to be blessed. I, a lowly nothing! My Lord, my adored Jesus, it is also Your infinite goodness that proclaims Your glory. How good You are to keep my soul in constant humility! My Lord, Your glory showed itself even more for having praised me. I am annihilated. Like a grain of dust, I fall at Your feet.” (Elizabeth) (January 13, 1966)

 Today’s Readings: The LORD gives sight to the blind.
The LORD raises up those who are bowed down;
    the LORD loves the just.
The LORD protects strangers. (Psalm 146)

 Prayer Meditation- Lord ,we bless You, praise You and adore You because in the first reading of today, we read not only about a happy ending for Tobit and Sarah with sight restored and successful marriage but we see Your faithfulness. We see how You give sight to the blind, raise up those who are bowed down, and protect the stranger, and all of us are strangers in this world because You are our true home! We are lowly nothings, grains of dust, and yet You see us, You hear us, and You restore us in due time. Lord may we always trust Your perfect timing. If what are  praying for is delayed let us wait with trust because You are never late (Habakkuk 2:3). Jesus, we trust in You!
