Daily Prayer & Reading for December 14, 2022

Feast of St. John of the Cross

Heavenly Father, when St. John of the Cross was alone and persecuted – during the darkest of times – he found You. Help me to share that same faith that You are always there – especially in the times when You seem absent and far away. Amen.

Audio of daily prayer read by Fr. Uribe OMI

Luke 7: 18B-23

At that time,
John summoned two of his disciples and sent them to the Lord to ask,
“Are you the one who is to come, or should we look for another?”
When the men came to the Lord, they said,
“John the Baptist has sent us to you to ask,
‘Are you the one who is to come, or should we look for another?’”
At that time Jesus cured many of their diseases, sufferings, and evil spirits;
he also granted sight to many who were blind.
And Jesus said to them in reply,
“Go and tell John what you have seen and heard:
the blind regain their sight,
the lame walk,
lepers are cleansed,
the deaf hear, the dead are raised,
the poor have the good news proclaimed to them.
And blessed is the one who takes no offense at me.”

Padre Celestial, cuando San Juan de la Cruz estaba solo y perseguido – durante los tiempos más oscuros – te encontró. Ayúdame a compartir esa misma fe de que Tú siempre estás ahí – especialmente en los momentos en que pareces ausente y lejano. Amén.

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

Lc 7, 19-23
En aquel tiempo, Juan envió a dos de sus discípulos a preguntar a Jesús: “¿Eres tú el que ha de venir o tenemos que esperar a otro?” Cuando llegaron a donde estaba Jesús, le dijeron: “Juan el Bautista nos ha mandado a preguntarte si eres tú el que ha de venir o tenemos que esperar a otro”.
En aquel momento, Jesús curó a muchos de varias enfermedades y dolencias y de espíritus malignos, y a muchos ciegos les concedió la vista. Después contestó a los enviados: “Vayan a contarle a Juan lo que han visto y oído: los ciegos ven, los cojos andan, los leprosos quedan limpios, los sordos oyen, los muertos resucitan y a los pobres se les anuncia el Evangelio. Dichoso el que no se escandalice de mí”.
