For a more enriching experience,
go down on your knees to pray or take it one step further
and prostrate yourself (lay face down) on the floor while praying.
Father, today's reading below reminds me to pay closer attention to the signs that are signaling me that change is occurring. Just as the fig tree buds and signals that it will bear fruit, so must I pay attention to the budding around me that signals change is eminent. Sometimes I can be so firmly planted in this physical realm that I lose touch with the spiritual realm. I am reminded that I must always connect the signs and signals of this physical realm with You. Everything means something. All too often I get caught up in physical manifestation and forget about my spiritual destination. Whatever is going on in my world, it should always lead me right back to You. It does not matter what I am going through, if I stay on my spiritual progression path, I should arrive right back to You. Thank You for the reminder to pay closer attention to the signs and signals around me, even when they are as tiny as a bud on a fig tree.
Through Jesus Christ's Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face. ~Amen
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke
29 And He told them a parable: "Look at the fig tree, and all the trees;
30 as soon as they come out in leaf, you see for yourselves and know that the summer is already near.
31 So also, when you see these things taking place, you know that the kingdom of God is near.
32 Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away till all has taken place.
33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away."
The Gospel of the Lord
Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ
