Daily Prayer & Reading for December 13, 2022

Gracious God, You have given me so much to be thankful for. Help me to always remember that I have been blessed with so much. Watch over those who may be struggling to realize what their true blessings might be. Help them not to think of what they don’t have…but what they have before them right now. Amen.

Audio of daily prayer read by Fr. Uribe OMI

Matthew 21: 28-32

Jesus said to the chief priests and the elders of the people:
“What is your opinion?
A man had two sons.
He came to the first and said,
‘Son, go out and work in the vineyard today.’
The son said in reply, ‘I will not,’
but afterwards he changed his mind and went.
The man came to the other son and gave the same order.
He said in reply, ‘Yes, sir,’ but did not go.
Which of the two did his father’s will?”
They answered, “The first.”
Jesus said to them, “Amen, I say to you,
tax collectors and prostitutes
are entering the Kingdom of God before you.
When John came to you in the way of righteousness,
you did not believe him;
but tax collectors and prostitutes did.
Yet even when you saw that,
you did not later change your minds and believe him.”

Dios bondadoso, me has dado mucho por lo que estar agradecido. Ayúdame a recordar siempre que he sido bendecido con mucho. Cuida a aquellos que pueden estar luchando por darse cuenta de cuáles son sus verdaderas bendiciones. Ayúdales a no pensar en lo que no tienen… sino en lo que tienen ante ellos ahora mismo. Amén.

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

Mt 21, 28-32
En aquel tiempo, Jesús dijo a los sumos sacerdotes y a los ancianos del pueblo: “¿Qué opinan de esto? Un hombre que tenía dos hijos fue a ver al primero y le ordenó: ‘Hijo, ve a trabajar hoy en la viña’. Él le contestó: ‘Ya voy, señor’, pero no fue. El padre se dirigió al segundo y le dijo lo mismo. Éste le respondió: ‘No quiero ir’, pero se arrepintió y fue. ¿Cuál de los dos hizo la voluntad del padre?” Ellos le respondieron: “El segundo”.
Entonces Jesús les dijo: “Yo les aseguro que los publicanos y las prostitutas se les han adelantado en el camino del Reino de Dios. Porque vino a ustedes Juan, predicó el camino de la justicia y no le creyeron; en cambio, los publicanos y las prostitutas sí le creyeron; ustedes, ni siquiera después de haber visto, se han arrepentido ni han creído en él”.
