Daily Prayer & Reading for December 26, 2022

Father of peace, accept my faith and sincerity. By sharing in the mystery of Jesus Your Son, draw me closer to You and to all Your people. Amen.

Audio of daily prayer read by Fr. Uribe OMI

Matthew 10: 17-22

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Beware of men, for they will hand you over to courts
and scourge you in their synagogues,
and you will be led before governors and kings for my sake
as a witness before them and the pagans.
When they hand you over,
do not worry about how you are to speak
or what you are to say.
You will be given at that moment what you are to say.
For it will not be you who speak
but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.
Brother will hand over brother to death,
and the father his child;
children will rise up against parents and have them put to death.
You will be hated by all because of my name,
but whoever endures to the end will be saved.”

Padre de la paz, acepta mi fe y mi sinceridad. Al compartir el misterio de Jesús, tu Hijo, acércame a ti y a todo tu pueblo. Amén.

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

Mt 10, 17-22

En aquel tiempo, Jesús dijo a sus apóstoles: “Cuídense de la gente, porque los llevarán a los tribunales, los azotarán en las sinagogas, los llevarán ante gobernadores y reyes por mi causa; así darán testimonio de mí ante ellos y ante los paganos. Pero, cuando los enjuicien, no se preocupen por lo que van a decir o por la forma de decirlo, porque, en ese momento se les inspirará lo que han de decir. Pues no serán ustedes los que hablen, sino el Espíritu de su Padre el que hablará por ustedes.
El hermano entregará a su hermano a la muerte, y el padre a su hijo; los hijos se levantarán contra sus padres y los matarán; todos los odiarán a ustedes por mi causa, pero el que persevere hasta el fin, se salvará’’.


This week, the Oblates in the Philippines are praying for you.

Recently the Oblates there sponsored a three day Mindanao Sports for Peace at the Oblates’ Notre Dame of Midsayap College.

The Sports Program has three components: sports clinics in basketball, volleyball and badminton; trauma healing and counseling sessions, and countering violent extremism. Father Romeo Sanil, OMI, said third component is brought about by present realities in Mindanao.

“The youth and children who are victims of armed conflict are experiencing traumas brought about by violence and war, hatred and mistrust, and drug abuse. These negative experiences are utilized by extremist groups present in the area in their recruitment. Mindanao Sports for Peace attempts to respond to these economic, social and psychological problems. It is believed that sports can transform the lives of these innocent victims.”
