353. To be released
Jesus says that we are not the only ones to be saved:
“I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold. These also I must lead, and they will hear my voice, and there will be one flock, one shepherd.” John, chapter 10, verse 16
People follow Jesus without knowing it and Jesus welcomes them as they are. As christians, we’re invited to seek, with Jesus, the people who don’t seem from his enclosure, to encourage them to follow and talk to them about his Love.
Too many people today live in fear and rejection, violence in many forms. Let’s pray for these people to be released from the tormentors of violence, scorn, hatred.
Let’s pray also for the violent and unhappy people to become converted and models of faith, love and peace. May their hearts be healed from the injustices they also experienced in their childhood.
Let’s continue to evangelize them with values, joy, hope, peace. Because these values are worth more than gold. The presence of Jesus in a life is worth more than anything.
Happy are we to know that Jesus is in our life! Let’s pray for Jesus’ presence to spread in the world. Joy will grow in us each time we present to the Trinity a person interested in adhering to his Love.
