Daily Prayer & Reading for February 13, 2023

Loving Creator, let us always remember that youth is a state of mind rather than a time of life. Help us to experience the everyday joys and wonders of life as well as the childlike curiosity and amazement of everything You have created. Help us to stay young at heart by cherishing Your love, hope and mercy. Amen.

Mark 8:11-13

The Pharisees came forward and began to argue with Jesus,
seeking from him a sign from heaven to test him.
He sighed from the depth of his spirit and said,
“Why does this generation seek a sign?
Amen, I say to you, no sign will be given to this generation.”
Then he left them, got into the boat again,
and went off to the other shore.

13 de Febreo

Amado Creador, permítenos recordar siempre que la juventud es un estado mental más que una época de la vida. Ayúdanos a experimentar las alegrías cotidianas y las maravillas de la vida, así como la curiosidad infantil y el asombro por todo lo que Tú has creado. Ayúdanos a mantenernos jóvenes de corazón apreciando Tu amor, esperanza y misericordia. Amén.

Mc 8, 11-13

En aquel tiempo, se acercaron a Jesús los fariseos y se pusieron a discutir con él, y para ponerlo a prueba, le pedían una señal del cielo. Jesús suspiró profundamente y dijo: “¿Por qué esta gente busca una señal? Les aseguro que a esta gente no se le dará ninguna señal”.

Entonces los dejó, se embarcó de nuevo y se fue a la otra orilla.

This week the Oblates in Germany are praying for you.

The Oblates in Germany oversee the operation of a former seminary building being used to house refugee families. Currently there are about 80 people living at the facility from many different countries. There are also two Oblates who live at the housing complex. “For me, the refugees are messengers of God,’ said Fr. Alfred Tonnis, OMI. “They pull us out of the fences around us, out of our structures, our oasis of well-being and our borders. They broaden our view. They transcend borders and challenge us. They oblige us not to define the words of mercy but to live it.”
