Daily Prayer and Reading 11/15

November 15, 2022

Audio of daily prayer read by Fr. Uribe OMI

Pets are a blessing, Lord. These loving creatures keep us company and help us get through rough days. They are truly a gift from You. I pray for those animals who live in shelters or run the streets alone. May they one day experience the love they deserve. Amen.


Luke 19: 1-10 

At that time Jesus came to Jericho and intended to pass through the town.
Now a man there named Zacchaeus,
who was a chief tax collector and also a wealthy man, 
was seeking to see who Jesus was;
but he could not see him because of the crowd,
for he was short in stature. 
So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore tree in order to see Jesus,
who was about to pass that way.
When he reached the place, Jesus looked up and said, 
“Zacchaeus, come down quickly,
for today I must stay at your house.” 
And he came down quickly and received him with joy. 
When they saw this, they began to grumble, saying, 
“He has gone to stay at the house of a sinner.” 
But Zacchaeus stood there and said to the Lord,
“Behold, half of my possessions, Lord, I shall give to the poor,
and if I have extorted anything from anyone
I shall repay it four times over.”
And Jesus said to him,
“Today salvation has come to this house
because this man too is a descendant of Abraham. 
For the Son of Man has come to seek
and to save what was lost.”

Audio de la oración diaira leída por el p. Uribe, OMI 

Las mascotas son una bendición, Señor. Estas criaturas cariñosas nos hacen compañía y nos ayudan a afrontar los días complicados. Son un verdadero regalo tuyo. Rezo por aquellos animales que viven en refugios o corren solos por las calles. Que un día puedan experimentar el amor que merecen. Amén.


Lc 19, 1-10

En aquel tiempo, Jesús entró en Jericó, y al ir atravesando la ciudad, sucedió que un hombre llamado Zaqueo, jefe de publicanos y rico, trataba de conocer a Jesús, pero la gente se lo impedía, porque Zaqueo era de baja estatura. Entonces corrió y se subió a un árbol para verlo cuando pasara por ahí. Al llegar a ese lugar, Jesús levantó los ojos y le dijo: “Zaqueo, bájate pronto, porque hoy tengo que hospedarme en tu casa”

Él bajó enseguida y lo recibió muy contento. Al ver esto, comenzaron todos a murmurar diciendo: “Ha entrado a hospedarse en casa de un pecador”.

Zaqueo, poniéndose de pie, dijo a Jesús: “Mira, Señor, voy a dar a los pobres la mitad de mis bienes, y si he defraudado a alguien, le restituiré cuatro veces más”. Jesús le dijo: “Hoy ha llegado la salvación a esta casa, porque también él es hijo de Abraham, y el Hijo del hombre ha venido a buscar y a salvar lo que se había perdido”.
