Thought for the day: The Lord understands us and knows us better than we know ourselves. O Lord, you have searched me and known me. You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from far away. You search out my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways. (Psa 139:1–3) He knows of what we are made and so we can come confidently before him with our brokenness and need of his grace. It might be good during Mass today to become aware of whatever is a burden to me now in my life and ask the Lord for his love and healing touch. Prayer: Lord, you bore the weight of our humanity to come as near to us as possible. Help us to realise you stand beside us and walk with us in the journey of life.

Pope Francis Tweet: Let us pray together that Catholics place at the centre of their lives the Eucharistic Celebration which transforms human relationships and opens up an encounter with God and their brothers and sisters.
