1 Corinthians 11:24 (Holy Thursday)

09 Apr 1 Corinthians 11:24 (Holy Thursday)

Welcome God every morning before your work by taking ~5 min to read this Living In Faith Exchange (LIFE) Group devotion (life-devotions.blogspot.com), which has snippets from Living Faith. All whatsoever you do in word or in work, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Col. 3:17

“This is my body that is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” 1 Cor 11:24

Living Faith: Those of us who experience our First Communion as children may sometimes take this precious sacrament for granted, but those who come to it as adults tend to treasure it. I heard many stories about the place of honor the Eucharist takes in the lives of the faithful when I was interviewing people for a book about why Catholics choose the faith. Our man who had been estranged from the Church talked of returning because he felt empty without the Eucharist. A woman who became Catholic after marriage was drawn to the opportunity to be with Christ through the Eucharist almost any time she chooses. And a Catholic man who rediscovered his faith as a teenager found an intimacy in the Eucharist that he believes can transform our hearts. May we all experience that transformation on this holy day.” by Beth Dotson Brown

Faith Challenge: Let’s challenge each other to joyfully live out the Good News. Suggestions?

* NEW: Just as Christ washed the feet of His disciples, may we wash each other’s feet. Find a way to serve others today.

Counter-Culture News: LifeSiteNews, American Family Association, Priests for Life

* Let’s never forget the horrific reality of abortion (images)…#1 cause of death in America. Let’s courageously share ProLife Truth (John 14:6) to create social tension for exposing abortion’s unjust peace…rebuilding a Culture of Life (Matt 5:16) and setting the unborn free!

ProLife Station #13 (Jesus is Taken Down from the Cross): “Mary experienced the pain of holding her dead Son. So many mothers grieve after their abortions. We ask that Mary may comfort them, help them face the truth about abortion, and lead them to forgiveness and healing.” by Fr. Frank Pavone (Priests for Life)

Our Prayers: Those who pray together stay together. Fasting ideas below.

* Prayer to end abortion, abused children, chastity, peace, our enemies, our troops, depression/ despair, prisoners, ProLife politicians, illnesses/injuries, jobs, Maureen Rogers (pain)

Faith Quote: “Yes, I see the Church as the body of Christ. But, oh! How we have blemished and scarred that body through social neglect and through fear of being nonconformists.” by Martin Luther King, Jr.

Through Christ Our Lord,


Romans 12:12

* Prayer: Prayer connects us with God’s will & His miracles, changing us & helping others. ‘If you pray that God will move a mountain and He doesn’t, assume Christ wants you to climb it instead.’

* Fasting: Let’s fast from things that take our eyes off Jesus (selfishness, bitterness, being so critical, impatience, gossip, excessive video games, etc) and take on things that fix our eyes on Jesus (selflessness, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, patience, understanding, caring, helping, listening).

* Defend the unborn: ‘Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to death; don’t stand back and let them die’ (Prov 24:11). ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you’ (Jer 1:5). ‘It is a great poverty that a child must die that you might live as you wish’ (Blessed Mother Teresa).

* Evangelization: Let’s make room for unbelievers (be a friend, make a friend, lead friend to Christ) and perpetual re-evangelization of self and those near us, by way of daily prayer (relationship) and following Christ’s example of selfless love, mercy, and service.

Let’s joyfully invite others to join our LIFE Group…Rich or Pat will gladly add them to the devotions distribution list (Mark 16:15)!
