Readings: Gal. 2:1-2, 7-14 | Ps. 117:1-2 | Lk. 11:1-4
Paul relates the story of his meeting with Peter and the apostles in Jerusalem. At this point in time it was decided that Peter would work with the Jews and Paul would instruct the Gentiles. Jesus teaches the apostles how to pray. The Our Father is a prayer that has been recited ever since. It would be important for us to stop and meditate on the words and then reflect on our own lives to see how well we live the words in our daily lives. Do we give praise to God for all our blessings? Do we depend on God for our daily needs? Do we trust that God will never let us go without the essentials? Do we forgive others? Or are there some people for whom we hold a grudge or deem unworthy of our forgiveness?
Take time to consider which phrase of the Our Father you need to work with. Choose one way you could practice this action. Find a way to check on your progress each day.
