"Create in me a pure heart, Oh God"

Permalink
Psalm 50 (51)
 
 
10.    Create in me a pure heart, Oh God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
 
11.    Do not cast me from your presence
or take your Holy Spirit from me.
 
12.    Restore to me the joy of your salvation
and grant me a willing spirit to sustain me.

Saint Joseph

Permalink
Matthew 1:18-24
 
Although we know that Jesus has only one Father, God the Father, in human terms and on this earth, Joseph was his father.  He was his adopted father, just as today many children do not have as their father their biological father.
 
We can see therefore Joseph as an inspiration and as an example of father love and fidelity.  He is a saint for all who adopt the role of father, whether or not they are fathers by blood of those precious sons and daughters for whom they are now responsible.
 
Heavenly Father, we thank you for the example and inspiration of St Joseph.  We pray for fathers we know who, like St Joseph, will be able to hear your word for their families.

Knowing the Father

Permalink
Matthew 11:25-27

As we become one with Jesus Christ in baptism and the life of faith, we are taken into his intimate relationship with God the Father. Through the gift of the Holy Spirit, we share in the love that exists between the Father and the Son.   We don’t enter this relationship primarily through intellectual understanding. When we adore the Holy Trinity we are caught up in a heart knowledge that is far more simple and profound, and we enter into the relationship and learn far more than we can ever understand intellectually. Through this sharing we become like 'little children', like the 'babes' Jesus talks about, and we begin to experience truths that are far beyond our imagination. 

Heavenly Father, by the revelation of Jesus Chris in the power of the Holy Spirit, draw me into the mystery of your everlasting love. 

Chris
