Acts 20:17-27, Psalm 68:10-11, 20-21, John 17:1-11


Acts 20:17-27, Psalm 68:10-11, 20-21, John 17:1-11

Acts 20:17-27

My Beloved, if any disciple can truthfully echo Paul's words as their mission comes to a close they can be at peace for they have been your good and faithful servant. Our life is the first witness of what we believe even  before we open our mouths to speak. A life lived in humility and service to ones neighbor is the mark of a true disciple. Nothing must deter us, neither trials, persecution or sorrow. The goal is clear and we must keep a steady course. This is possible only if we are completely in tune with the Holy Spirit.  We have all received the same mission to carry the Good News with us wherever we may be, You will provide all the grace we need. May I strive always to never stop to count the cost but to do all that You ask of me cheerfully, promptly and to the best of my ability.

Psalm 68:10-11, 20-21

My Beloved, You are with us always. You bless and comfort us. You feed us and strengthen us. You forgive us and are always merciful, tender and compassionate. As you deal with us grant that we deal with others. Thank You for being yoked to us and helping us carry our burdens each day.Thank You for salvation that comes to us only through You. Thank You for the promise of eternal life with You.

John 17:1-11

My Beloved, the blessed hour for which the Father sent You into the world has finally arrived. To You is given the power over all mankind. The ones chosen by the Father and entrusted to You are given the awesome  mission of establishing Your Church, preserving Your teaching and handing it down faithfully to all who will come to know you and the Father who sent You. To God is due all glory for sending us salvation and redemption through You. The Church is entrusted with the mission to ensure that Your teaching is handed down faithfully so that generation after generation will receive the truth, will come to know and believe in You and will be saved. We bear Your Name Beloved and are one in You as You are One with the Father.
