O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer you my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings of this day for all the intentions of your Sacred Heart, in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world, for the salvation of souls, the reparation of sins, the reunion of all Christians, and in particular for the intentions of the Holy Father this month.

Daily Prayer & Reading for December 15, 2022

I often feel as if I’m meant to do more. Lord, I ask You to guide me. Show me the way. I know there are many ways that I can share Your Word and the gifts You have given me, but I need guidance. Where do I begin? Help me to feel complete. Amen.

Audio of daily prayer read by Fr. Uribe OMI

Luke 7: 24-30

When the messengers of John the Baptist had left,
Jesus began to speak to the crowds about John.
“What did you go out to the desert to see a reed swayed by the wind?
Then what did you go out to see?
Someone dressed in fine garments?
Those who dress luxuriously and live sumptuously
are found in royal palaces.
Then what did you go out to see?
A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet.
This is the one about whom Scripture says:
Behold, I am sending my messenger ahead of you,
he will prepare your way before you.
I tell you,
among those born of women, no one is greater than John;
yet the least in the Kingdom of God is greater than he.”
(All the people who listened, including the tax collectors,
who were baptized with the baptism of John,
acknowledged the righteousness of God;
but the Pharisees and scholars of the law,
who were not baptized by him,
rejected the plan of God for themselves.)

A menudo siento que debería hacer más. Señor, te pido que me guíes. Muéstrame el camino. Sé que hay muchas maneras en las que puedo compartir Tu Palabra y los dones que me has dado, pero necesito una guía. ¿Por dónde empiezo? Ayúdame a sentirme completo. Amén.

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

Lc 7, 24-30
Cuando se fueron los mensajeros de Juan, Jesús comenzó a hablar de él a la gente, diciendo: “¿Qué salieron a ver en el desierto? ¿Una caña sacudida por el viento? ¿O qué salieron a ver? ¿Un hombre vestido con telas preciosas? Los que visten fastuosamente y viven entre placeres, están en los palacios. Entonces, ¿qué salieron a ver? ¿Un profeta? Sí, y yo les aseguro que es más que profeta. Es aquel de quien está escrito: Yo envío mi mensajero delante de ti para que te prepare el camino. Yo les digo que no hay nadie más grande que Juan entre todos los que han nacido de una mujer. Y con todo, el más pequeño en el Reino de Dios es mayor que él”.
Todo el pueblo que lo escuchó, incluso los publicanos, aceptaron el designio de justicia de Dios, haciéndose bautizar por el bautismo de Juan. Pero los fariseos y los escribas no aceptaron ese bautismo y frustraron, en su propio daño, el plan de Dios.
