Daily Prayer

October 17, 2019

I am the wheat of God,
and am ground by the teeth
of the wild beasts, that I may be found
the pure bread of God.
I long after the Lord,
the Son of the true God and Father,
Jesus Christ.
Him I seek, who died for us
and rose again,
I am eager to die
for the sake of Christ.
My love has been crucified,
and there is no fire in me
that loves anything.
But there is living water
springing up in me,
and it says to me inwardly.
“Come to the Father."

Marianist 3 O'Clock Prayer

Lord, Jesus,
You were lifted up on the wood of the cross to draw all people to yourself; you shed your life's blood so that sin may be forgiven and we might have life to the full.
By embracing this holy mystery of our salvation, may we become your beloved disciples, accepting from your outstretched arms your gift of Mary as our Mother.
May we learn from her, to treasure and ponder your Cross and Resurrection so that one day, with you as our Lord and God, with John our patron and model, and with Mary, our joy and our hope, we may all be gathered together around the Tree of Eternal Life.
And may the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit be glorified in all places through the Immaculate Virgin Mary. Amen.
