Tuesday of Holy Week
Thank you for Jesus’ words that the Gospels give us. They no doubt report only a fraction of what he said, but we assume they share the ones we most need to hear and heed.
The few words we have are evidently more than we can handle.
Forgive us for not taking Jesus’ words seriously enough. Help us do better. Help us dedicate ourselves to reading, studying, understanding, and believing them. Help us be who Jesus teaches us to be. Help us do what Jesus teaches us to do.
Jesus is our teacher. Let us learn from him.
Jesus is our Lord. Let us obey him.
Jesus is our life. Let us live in him.
