Then they said to him, "John´s disciples, like the disciples of the Pharisees, frequently fast and pray, but your disciples eat and drink." Jesus said to them, "You cannot make wedding guests fast while the bridegroom is with them, can you? The days will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from them, and then they will fast in those days." He also told them a parable: "No one tears a piece from a new garment and sews it on an old garment; otherwise the new will be torn, and the piece from the new will not match the old. And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; otherwise the new wine will burst the skins and will be spilled, and the skins will be destroyed. But new wine must be put into fresh wineskins. And no one after drinking old wine desires new wine, but says, ´The old is good.´"
Introductory Prayer: Lord, I believe in you: Help me to believe more firmly. I trust in you: Help me to trust more surely. I love you: Help me to love you more ardently. I am sorry for my sins: Help me to deepen my sorrow. (Universal Prayer of Pope Clement XI)
Petition: Lord, rejuvenate my love for you, and grant me the grace to spread this love to those I encounter today.
Conversation with Christ: Lord Jesus, you are my best friend. I am so happy because of what you did for me 2000 years ago on the cross. You give me so much hope amidst all types of difficulties, misunderstandings and persecutions. The thought that you are looking over me brightens my day and gives me the confidence I need to be your untiring apostle.
Resolution: I will pray the Stations of the Cross today for the reparation of the sins of the world.
