Prayer by Fr. Augustine Vallooran V.C.
Wherever you are, my brothers and sisters, let us pause for a moment and remember that God is there with you. God sees you and wants to talk to you at this moment. Open your heart to God's Love and Light flowing into your heart. God is coming to console you and comfort you at this moment. Holy Spirit, our Comforter, you are the gift given by the Father to us - to console and comfort us. Spirit of God, let your heavenly comfort flow into us and fill us. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Let us pause for a moment.
Look at your cross and think of everyone who hurt you.
Think of every moment when you were sad.
Think of every occasion when things went wrong with you.
Think of all such circumstances in your lives.
In such moments, you thought you were unfortunate. But it is in such moments that you and I were fortunate.
We were fortunate because we were sharing in the triumph of the cross.
In the future, at every moment of cross, let Jesus triumph!
Let the crucified Lord triumph in our lives.
