Monday of the first week of Advent

Daily Prayer

Loving God,
I sense that all is your creation
and everything, and all of us,
are being drawn back toward your loving heart.
Help me to be a person of peace,
to speak about it in an uneasy world,
and to live it among the people
you have put into my life every day.
Light in me a desire to prepare for your coming
to stand in the darkness, waiting, eager and filled with joy.
May the Lord bless us,
protect us from all evil
and bring us to everlasting life.
Amen.

Reflection

In today’s Gospel, we hear the Centurion proclaim: “Lord, I am not worthy, but only say the Word…” How often we may feel unworthy of God’s love.  But his love is unending and gives us Hope.
