Machnamh / Reflection

Lord Jesus, touch our eyes
so that we may see the signs of your presence
in our lives and in the world.
Touch our ears so that we may hear your word.
Touch our tongues so that
we may profess our faith.
Touch our hands so that we may
give and receive.
Touch our feet so that we may
walk in your paths.
Touch our minds so that we may
understand your ways.
Touch our wills so that they may
be in tune with your will.
Touch our hearts so that we may
bring your love to one another.

Just a Thought / Smaoineamh

The Christina vocation causes the vision of a higher and a purer life to rise up before us. At the same time it inspires sacrifice and service of others. It expands the possibilities of human love and courage. The task is not for the individual Christian only but for the Christian community as a whole. It is easier to witness to Christ as a member of a supportive community. At our baptism we are welcomed into a believing community. The feast of Baptism of Jesus reminds us of our own Baptism, and provides us with an opportunity to commit ourselves once again to the Christian life.
