June 3 – Monday
Memorial of Saint Charles Lwanga and Companions, Martyrs
Gospel Reading: JN 16:29-33
When Jesus taught his disciples he often spoke in parables and short stories and vivid images which expressed in picture language what God's kingdom is like and how God's power can change and transform our lives to be like him. These stories were intended to make his disciples reflect and think through the inner spiritual truths he wanted them to understand and accept.
Prayer: (all together)
Lord Jesus, help me to understand your stories in the gospel and give me your peace, inner peace when I am troubled. Amen
