Meditation Tuesday, February 7 – 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)

Jesus, thank you for this time that you give me to be able to be with you. You know what is in my heart. In your hands I place all that I am and everything I have. I know very well that You welcomes me, and love me as I am; what I believe, but I know You support my faith. To Thee I entrust all my plans and fears, all of my laughter and my tears, I know very well you will never leave me, but grant me the hope that I need to never leave you. Only You can fill in all the thirst of love that my heart has. Grant me that I never stop, my heart will want more and more every day and I never get tired of looking for you until the day that you can love fully in the sky. Amen.

Gospel of the day (to guide your meditation)

From the holy Gospel according to saint Mark 7: 1-13

At that time, came to Jesus the pharisees and some scribes who came from Jerusalem. Seeing that some of Jesus ‘ disciples ate with hands defiled, that is to say, without removal washing, the pharisees and the scribes asked: “why do thy disciples eat with hands unwashed and not follow the tradition of our elders?” (The pharisees and the jews, in general, do not eat without washing the hands up to the elbow, following the tradition of their elders; the return of the market, do not eat without first making ablution, and observe many other things by tradition, as to purify the vessels, jugs and pots).

Jesus answered them: “How well did Isaiah prophesy about you hypocrites when he wrote: This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. It is useless to worship that pay me, because they teach doctrines which are nothing but precepts, human. You leave the commandment of God, to hold on to the traditions of men”.

Then he added: “really you are very skillful to violate the commandment of God and to preserve their tradition. For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother. and: whoever curses his father or his mother shall be put to death. But you say: ‘If one says to his father or his mother, anything that I could help you is corbán (that is to say, an offering to the temple), you can no longer do anything for his father or for his mother’. So nullify the word of God with this tradition that have been handed down. And you do many similar things to this.”

The word of the Lord.

Meditate on what God says in the Gospel.

Love with all your heart.

My jesus, in my heart still echoes the criticism that You’re talking to the pharisees: “this people honor me with their lips, but their heart is far from me”. At first glance I may seem that your words are very harsh, but in the end the pharisees they deserved to win. Could stay with that idea, and pass by without paying attention to the real invitation that You do to the pharisees: ámenme with all the heart.

Sometimes I forget that You also loved the pharisees. Not those you thought your enemies, but loved by Thee that deserved so much love from you as I am. If the discipline is not because you want to annoy them, but that they are also able to correspond to your infinite love.

I do see, Jesus, that You love them not for what they do, but for what they are: Your children. You try to show them that it is important to do things (to purify the jugs, washing up to the elbow…) but these things do not serve to nothing if they are not the response of a heart that knows he is loved by You.

This is also what I want to say to me. You want to in the first place that I know loved by You, and it’s in my heart burn in fire these words: “I love You and nothing you can do to stop it.”

In the second place, you want everything that I do (go to Church, help the poor…) is a loving response to the infinite love that I have.

“Let us ask the Lord, through the intercession of the Holy Virgin, to give us a pure heart, free from all hypocrisy, this is the word that Jesus says to the pharisees, ‘hypocrites,’ because they say one thing and do another. Free of all hypocrisy, so that we are able to live according to the spirit of the law and achieve its purpose, which is love”.

(Angelus de S. S. Francisco, August 30, 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 I am going to offer all my acts by the person who is most in need and I will try to remember it during the day.


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.
