Day 147: Christ’s Work in the Liturgy (1084-1090)

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father in Heaven, thank you so much. Thank you for the gift of the fact that what Jesus had done for us, what He has done for us 2,000 years ago halfway around the world for many of us comes to us now. Comes to us here in our little towns, in our big cities, in our small parishes, in our giant churches. Lord God, what your Son has done for us, we have access to. We have access to you. You make yourself present. You make the Holy Trinity present at every single Liturgy, Lord God. You make yourself completely accessible to us because you are Good and you love us. We thank you. We thank you for everything that you have done. We thank you for the Paschal Mystery, the life, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus which comes to us in every liturgy, especially in the Liturgy of the Eucharist. We thank you, Lord God. Please help us to have eyes that see. Right? Help us, Father, to have eyes that recognize your presence, your work, your Son, your Holy Spirit in the Liturgy. Especially when our eyes can be so obscured by seeing ordinary things. Lord God, you use ordinary things in an extraordinary way. You use ordinary things to give us extraordinary grace. You use ordinary things to give us yourself. So help us to have eyes to see and the Faith that receives and worships and loves you. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen”
