Day 121: The Apostolate (863-870)

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father in Heaven, we first thank you for pouring love into our hearts in your Holy Spirit. We thank you for revealing the depth of your Love in Jesus Christ. We ask you to continue to pour that love into our hearts for all the times, Lord God, that we have wasted the love you have given to us. For all the times that we have been numb or indifferent to your gifts. We ask that you please wake us up. Help us to acknowledge the fact that you are present, you are God, you are Good, and you love us. Give us that love so that we can be emissaries of love. That we can be apostles of love to your world. God, there are so many people in this world who do not know how much you love them. Help us to be united to the Apostolate of the whole Church and to do our small part, or our large part, to just bring your love to whatever tiny corner of the world we happen to find ourselves. Help us to love the people around us well today. Help them to know that in our loving them, they are reminded of your unstoppable and unfailing love for each one of them. We make this prayer in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen”
