Your Weekly Reflection in Prayer

Weekly Prayer Reflection for Autumn

“Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus, who, though He was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God as something to be exploited, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a slave…”
Philippians 2:5-6

Dear Deacon John,
The teacher of catechism class once explained the commandments and the Golden Rule by explaining to the children: “Remember, we are here to help others.” In response, one wise child then asked: “Then what are the others here for?"  An innocent answer, but one that reminds us that each and every one is to reach out and help the neighbor. St. Paul describes how Jesus did this, emptying Himself to bring life, hope, and salvation to everyone.
Give us, O God, the power to go on, to carry our share of labor to the end, to live all the years of our lives faithful to the neighbor, no looking back, no cowardice. Give us the power to give ourselves, to break the bread of our lives for others, as You, O Lord, have done in Your Son, Christ our Lord.
Rev. Peter Schineller, S.J., CMMB Board of Directors
