Day 156: How the Liturgy Is Celebrated (1145-1152)

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father in Heaven, we give you praise. We ask you in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ, to receive our thanksgiving, to receive our praise for you for who you are, for all that you have done. We ask you to please, in the name of your Son, Jesus, send your Holy Spirit out upon us that we can see you. That we can hear your voice. Lord God, in so many ways you have spoken to us. In the most complete and full way you have spoken to us through your Son. We ask that you please help us to be attuned to His voice. Help us to be attuned to His presence, His action, His reality in this world. Lord, for all the people that we come into contact with today, those we will see, those we have seen, those that are around us in this very moment, we ask that you please bless them as well. Because they are signs of your goodness as well. They are signs of your presence. They are signs of your reality. They were made in your image. And so help us to just see. Help us to see, to see you in your Creation, to see you in the people around us, and to see you in all things. We make this prayer in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen”
