Journey With The Pope – 15/5/2020

FRIDAY, MAY 15, 2020 

“”Remain in me and I in you” (Jn 15:4). This “remaining” is not passive but active. It is a mutual remaining. “I am the vine, you are the branches” (Jn 15:5). We branches need the lymph, and the vine needs the fruit of our witness… Prayer belongs to everyone: to men and women of every religion, and probably even to those who profess no religion. Prayer is born within the secrecy of our being, in that interior place that spiritual writers often call the “heart.” May God have mercy on us and put an end to this tragedy, this pandemic, as well as the pandemics of hunger, war, and children without an education. This we ask as brothers and sisters, everyone together.”

Psalm 57

I will give you thanks among the peoples, O Lord.

My heart is steadfast, O God; my heart is steadfast;
I will sing and chant praise.
Awake, O my soul; awake, lyre and harp!
I will wake the dawn.

I will give you thanks among the peoples, O Lord.

I will give thanks to you among the peoples, O LORD,
I will chant your praise among the nations.
For your mercy towers to the heavens,
and your faithfulness to the skies.
Be exalted above the heavens, O God;
above all the earth be your glory!

I will give you thanks among the peoples, O Lord.
