Meditation Thursday 23 February 2017 – Omnia

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Christ, our King. Thy Kingdom come!

Introductory prayer (for me in the presence of God)

Thou knowest well, Lord, many times I come fraught with problems; many times I’m tired and distressed. You know my heart and everything that concerns me. But you also know my great wishes for being here. You know well that I need you, I long to hear your voice and contemplate the great love that I have. Leave you here, at the foot of your cross, all that I am; I just want to be here loving and leaving me love.

Gospel of the day (to guide your meditation)

From the holy Gospel according to st. Mark 9, 41-50

At that time, Jesus said to his disciples: “he who gives to drink a glass of water, because you follow the Messiah, I assure you that it will not be left without reward. Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe, the more you would you encajasen in the neck a millstone, and cast him into the sea. If your hand causes you to fall, córtatela: you better enter into life maimed, than to go with two hands into hell, into the fire that is not quenched. And if your foot causes you to fall, córtatelo: you better to enter halt into life, than to be cast with two feet into hell. And, if your eye causes you to fall, sácatelo: you better enter one-eyed into the kingdom of God, than to be cast with two eyes into hell, where the worm dieth not and the fire is not quenched.

Everyone will be salted with fire. Salt is good; but if the salt becomes bland, with what the sazonaréis? Let there be among you, the salt, and live in peace with each other.”

The word of the Lord.

Meditate on what God says in the Gospel.

The love, the salt of life.

If you do not have love, I am nothing, stated Paul in his letter to the christians of the first century. Today these words we can hear and amaze us today that they have because, in short, of what it serves to do great things if we do not give meaning to the smallest thing that we do, what good is to talk a lot and give great speeches if in the background we don’t know offer a smile when we are angry.

Let us think for a moment about the mothers and ask where is his greatness. There is, without doubt, in not having been wrong or to have been the best but in the love and the kindness which they had with us in the smallest details. In that touch, or that smile that we needed. On that board or in that simple word that came to us the depths of the heart. The greatness of man is not in what you do but how you do it. Whether or not that grain of salt to the life that is love. Perhaps what we can offer to another is as simple, but if you are full of love, you can become the greatest act.

“Faith opens the “window” to the actual presence of the Spirit and shows us that, as the happiness, the holiness is always linked to the small gestures. “Give them to drink a glass of water in my name, Jesus says, will not be without reward” (Mk 9,41). Are minimum gestures that one learns in the home; gestures of family that are lost in the anonymity of everyday life but make it different each day. Are gestures of a mother, grandmother, father, grandfather, son, brothers and sisters. Are gestures of tenderness, of caring, of compassion. Are gestures of the hot plate of the one who hopes to have dinner, early breakfast in the that you know to accompany you to get up early. Are gestures of home. It is the blessing before sleep, and the hug when you come back from a long day of work. Love manifests itself in small things, in the minimum of attention to the everyday that makes the life you have always taste of home.”

(Homily of S. S. Francis, September 27, 2015).

Dialogue with Christ

This is the most important part of your prayer, be prepared to talk with a lot of love with the One who loves you.


Make it a personal one. The more love involved in response to the Beloved… or, if you think that is what God asks of you, live what you suggested below.

Today, Jesus, I offer you to live attentive to the needs of others. I will seek help as you can, maybe with something small, but what I will do as You would: with lots of love.


We thank you, Lord, for all your benefits, You who live and reign for ever and ever.


Christ, our King!

Thy Kingdom come!

Virgin prudentísima, Mary, Mother of the Church.

Pray for us.

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
