Memorial of Saint Justin, Martyr
Reading 1 – 1 Peter 4:7-13
Responsorial Psalm (The Lord comes to judge the earth)
Gospel – Mark 11: 11-26
My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples?
But you have made it a den of thieves.”
Christian go to church and say their novenas and traditional prayers. Going out of church they are back to their sinful habits.
We often forget that Jesus is present in each one and cleaning our heart’s desires, our words and purifying our actions – is cleaning our house of prayer – this is saying goodbye to the theives that steal away our happiness.
Prayer: All together
Lord Jesus, help us to purify
our minds and our thinking
our words and our talking
our hearts and our loving
and make our lives worthy to bring you honor and glory in all that we do. Amen.
