(Resp Ps 42-43)
We wait during our earthly pilgrimage to one day behold the face of God. Amidst daily struggles, temptations, and challenges that test our faith, we search for the living God who is in search of us. Where are you on this Monday? Remember, ‘Whoever enters the gate through JESUS THE GOOD SHEPHERD will be saved, and will come in and go out and find pasture.’ Jesus loves you, listen to Him. ALLELUIA. Keep going!I CAME SO THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE LIFE AND HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY.SEND FORTH YOUR LIGHT AND YOUR FIDELITY;THEY SHALL LEAD ME ONAND BRING ME TO YOUR HOLY MOUNTAIN,TO YOUR DWELLING-PLACE.The Word of God is the lamp with which we look to the future:its light allows us to read the sign of the times.
