REFLECTION: God is with me. I want nothing on the earth.
St. Pierre Toussaint
Saint Pierre Toussaint, a man of remarkable grace and humiliity, was a slave by birth. Just after the Revolutionary War, he left Haiti for New York, where he worked as a hairdresser, and became known for his wisdom and generosity.


Give us a pure heart that we may
see you,
A humble heart that we may hear
you,
A heart of love that we may serve
you,
A heart of faith that we may
abide in you.
Dag Hammarskjold
Sect. General, United Nations

Too late I loved you, O Beauty so ancient yet ever new! Too late I loved you! And behold, you were within me, and I out of myself, and there I searched for you.
St. Augustine

Where love is, God is.
Sr. Wendy Beckett

The almighty and most holy Word of the Father pervades the whole of reality, everywhere unfolding his power and shining on all things visible and invisible. He sustains it all and binds it together in himself. He leaves nothing devoid of his power but gives life and keeps it in being throughout all of creation and in each individual.
Theophane the Recluse

What made me start my work, what inspired me and kept me going during so many years? Jesus. We do it for Jesus. I take Jesus at his word and He never lets me down.
To make it possible for us to see the face of God with our human eyes, He has made himself the hungry one, the naked one, the homeless one, the lonely one.
Mother Teresa of Calcutta


Come, let us sing joyfully to the Lord


APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: Where two or three are gathered in my name there am I. Let us be aware of Jesus in our midst. Let us welcome him, love him, .adore him. He is here.
General Intercessions:
Introduction: My sisters and brothers, we are gathered in the infinite richness of God's love. Let us worship him:
We adore thy divine presence, O Lord Jesus;
We adore God's love that gave you to
us, O divine Jesus;
May all of us throughout the world live the way you want us to: loving our neighbors, O Jesus Christ.

Faith Formation
Jesus is here with us. He is with us all the time. Not to judge us, but to love us, to comfort us, to be with us. He loves us.
Be aware of the presence of Jesus when gathered in his name, and be aware of the presence of Jesus in yourself, in your heart, when you are alone or with others. Be aware of the presence of Jesus in other people you meet. Your neighbors. Jesus loves them, too, and is present in their hearts. You may not see him there, but that's not his fault, nor your neighbor's.
Adore Jesus. Words are unneccessary. Just adore him.
