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 is a reminder for me to look around, outside of my own personal world and see what is occurring around the world, above the world and also to the world itself. There are signs that you are sending that tell me to get my act together. I need to get myself straight and fly right. If I am to impact others rightly then I need to change myself and then they are forced to change in response to my change. If I changing rightly, then the odds of them changing rightly are increased. The sky is shaking and the earth is rumbling dear Father. I hear You and I see You in these things telling me to change. While it seems I cannot change others, I know that I can change them simply by changing myself. While it may take time, I am up for it because change is Good and change is often. Thank You Father for this awareness.
Through Jesus Christ's Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face. ~Amen
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke
Luke 21:25-28, 34-36
25 "And there will be signs in Sun and Moon and stars, and upon the earth distress of nations in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves,
26 men fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
27 And then they will see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
28 Now when these things begin to take place, look up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.
34 But take heed to yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a snare;
35 for it will come upon all who dwell upon the face of the whole earth.
36 But watch at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that will take place, and to stand before the Son of man."
The Gospel of the Lord
Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ
