World Diabetes Day

Father, so many of our lives are touched by diabetes. Today I pray for those who struggle daily with diabetes. Ease their worries, Lord. May their focus be not on their disease and their difficulties, but on living healthy and fulfilling lives. Give them strength on days they do not feel well, and help them to understand and appreciate the bodies in which they have been blessed. Keep them safe and healthy as they go about their days. Amen.

Luke 18: 35-43 

As Jesus approached Jericho
a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging,
and hearing a crowd going by, he inquired what was happening.
They told him,
“Jesus of Nazareth is passing by.”
He shouted, “Jesus, Son of David, have pity on me!”
The people walking in front rebuked him,
telling him to be silent,
but he kept calling out all the more,
“Son of David, have pity on me!”
Then Jesus stopped and ordered that he be brought to him;
and when he came near, Jesus asked him,
“What do you want me to do for you?”
He replied, “Lord, please let me see.”
Jesus told him, “Have sight; your faith has saved you.”
He immediately received his sight
and followed him, giving glory to God.
When they saw this, all the people gave praise to God.

This week the Oblates in China are praying for you.

Oblates in China

In the city of Guangzhou the Oblates have opened the Angel’s Love Center.  Angel’s Love provides a place for children of migrant workers to study and complete their homework.  There are about five million migrants living in Guangzhou.  Most came looking for work.  Those that come with children have an extra hardship because their children are provided only a limited education.  The Angel’s Love Center is helping to reduce the effects of this injustice.

Día Mundial de la Diabetes

Padre, muchas de nuestras vidas están afectadas por la diabetes. Hoy rezo por los que luchan a diario con la diabetes. Calma sus preocupaciones, Señor. Que su atención no se centre en su enfermedad y sus dificultades, sino en llevar una vida sana y plena. Dales fuerza en los días de malestar, y ayúdales a comprender y apreciar sus cuerpos, con los que han sido bendecidos. Consérvalos sanos y salvos en el transcurso de sus días. Amén.

Lc 18, 35-43

En aquel tiempo, cuando Jesús se acercaba a Jericó, un ciego estaba sentado a un lado del camino, pidiendo limosna. Al oír que pasaba gente, preguntó qué era aquello, y le explicaron que era Jesús el nazareno, que iba de camino. Entonces él comenzó a gritar: “¡Jesús, hijo de David, ten compasión de mí!” Los que iban adelante lo regañaban para que se callara, pero él se puso a gritar más fuerte: “¡Hijo de David, ten compasión de mí!”

Entonces Jesús se detuvo y mandó que se lo trajeran. Cuando estuvo cerca, le preguntó: “¿Qué quieres que haga por ti?” Él le contestó: “Señor, que vea”. Jesús le dijo: “Recobra la vista; tu fe te ha curado”.

Enseguida el ciego recobró la vista y lo siguió, bendiciendo a Dios. Y todo el pueblo, al ver esto, alababa a Dios.
