My prayer is that I will grow closer to Christ through my reflections.

Jesus said to his disciples: “As the Father loves me, so I also love you. Remain in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. “I have told you this so that my joy might be in you and your joy might be complete.”
Jn 15

I believe in You Lord, help my unbelief. I trust in You Lord, help me to trust more. I Love You Lord, strengthen my love.

R. All the ends of the earth have seen the saving power of God.

Sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done wondrous deeds; His right hand has won victory for him, his holy arm.

The LORD has made his salvation known: in the sight of the nations he has revealed his justice. He has remembered his kindness and his faithfulness toward the house of Israel.

All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation by our God. Sing joyfully to the LORD, all you lands; break into song; sing praise.

R. All the ends of the earth have seen the saving power of God.
Ps 98:

Praise be to God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit!

Jesus said to his disciples: “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You have faith in God; have faith also in me. In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If there were not, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back again and take you to myself, so that where I am you also may be. Where I am going you know the way.” Thomas said to him, “Master, we do not know where you are going; how can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
Jn 14

Thank you Thomas for your questions! Lord, I want always to be by Your side! Guide my journey! Lead me to Your Father's house!

R. For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.
The favors of the LORD I will sing forever; through all generations my mouth shall proclaim your faithfulness. For you have said, “My kindness is established forever”;
in heaven you have confirmed your faithfulness.

“My faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him, and through my name shall his horn be exalted. He shall say of me, ‘You are my father, my God, the Rock, my savior.’”
R. For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.
Psalm Ps 89:

God is so good. God is so good. God is so good, he's so good to me.

My sheep hear my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish. No one can take them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one can take them out of the Father’s hand. The Father and I are one.”
Jn 10

Lord keep me always in Your flock. So many times the troubles of my world have beaten me down. Without Your love I would have been lost. Even when I walk through a dark valley, I fear no harm for you are at my side; your rod and staff give me courage.

Thanks Adrienne, It looks great!
The Jews quarreled among themselves, saying, “How can this man give us his Flesh to eat?” Jesus said to them, “Amen, amen, I say to you, unless you eat the Flesh of the Son of Man and drink his Blood, you do not have life within you. Whoever eats my Flesh and drinks my Blood has eternal life, and I will raise him on the last day.
For my Flesh is true food, and my Blood is true drink. Whoever eats my Flesh and drinks my Blood remains in me and I in him. Just as the living Father sent me and I have life because of the Father, so also the one who feeds on me will have life because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven. Unlike your ancestors who ate and still died, whoever eats this bread will live forever.”
Jn 6

Dear Jesus how can I thank You for this Communion visit. You the great Father of heaven and earth have come to be my guest. My heart is very thankful and is singing You a thank you song. Thank You for coming today, thank You again and again for everything. I believe in Thee, I hope in Thee, I trust Thee. Dear Jesus keep me good. (A prayer I learned before my 1st Holy Communion and I have prayed it ever since.)
