Jesus, thank you for this opportunity to be with you, my Lord and my God. You always seek me first. Even my desire to encounter you is a fruit of your love for me, of the action of your grace in my heart. I trust that this day will be filled with the graces I need to respond generously to your call to holiness and to be your apostle.
Thank you for always coming toward me, Lord. Thank you for your love for
me. At times I don’t know what you see in me, Lord, but even in my
weakness and sinfulness I want to return love with love. Through the
gift of the Holy Spirit, help my love for you to be bold and ardent.
