EASTER. 5TH WEEK, FRI. 5/23 (HE CHOSE US)

THE PSALMIST EXHORTS US, “AWAKE, O MY SOUL.”  We can fall into the doldrums of self-doubt, of reduced and nihilistic lives.  Then we hear Christ say, “IT WAS NOT YOU WHO CHOSE ME, BUT I WHO CHOSE YOU.”  With steadfast hearts we rededicate our lives to the name of Jesus. 

PRAYER:  God of mercy and compassion, you brought about the salvation of the world through the death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Have mercy on us when we fail to live the new life you have given us; raise us up when our sinfulness sinks us into discouragement; grant us courage to renew our desire to live according to your will, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen. (Magnificat)
