Prayer Of The Day

Angel of God’s light,
whom God sends as a companion for me on earth,
protect me from the snares of the devil,
and help me to walk always as a child of God, my Creator.

Angel of God’s truth,
whose perfect knowledge serves what is true,
protect me from deceits and temptations.
Help me to know the truth,
and always to live the truth.

Angel of God’s love,
who praises Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
who sacrificed His life for love of us,

Reading I Acts 15:7-21

After much debate had taken place,
Peter got up and said to the Apostles and the presbyters,
“My brothers, you are well aware that from early days
God made his choice among you that through my mouth
the Gentiles would hear the word of the Gospel and believe.
And God, who knows the heart,
bore witness by granting them the Holy Spirit
just as he did us.
He made no distinction between us and them,
for by faith he purified their hearts.
Why, then, are you now putting God to the test
by placing on the shoulders of the disciples
a yoke that neither our ancestors nor we have been able to bear?
On the contrary, we believe that we are saved
through the grace of the Lord Jesus, in the same way as they.”
The whole assembly fell silent,
and they listened
while Paul and Barnabas described the signs and wonders
God had worked among the Gentiles through them.

After they had fallen silent, James responded,
“My brothers, listen to me.
Symeon has described how God first concerned himself
with acquiring from among the Gentiles a people for his name.
The words of the prophets agree with this, as is written:

            After this I shall return
                        and rebuild the fallen hut of David;
            from its ruins I shall rebuild it
                        and raise it up again,
            so that the rest of humanity may seek out the Lord,
                        even all the Gentiles on whom my name is invoked.
            Thus says the Lord who accomplishes these things,
                        known from of old.

It is my judgment, therefore,
that we ought to stop troubling the Gentiles who turn to God,
but tell them by letter to avoid pollution from idols,
unlawful marriage, the meat of strangled animals, and blood.
For Moses, for generations now,
has had those who proclaim him in every town,
as he has been read in the synagogues every sabbath.”

Responsorial Psalm 96:1-2a, 2b-3, 10

R.        (3)  Proclaim God’s marvelous deeds to all the nations.

Sing to the LORD a new song;

Sing to the LORD; bless his name.
R.        Proclaim God’s marvelous deeds to all the nations.
or:
R.        Alleluia.
Announce his salvation, day after day.

Say among the nations: The LORD is king.
He has made the world firm, not to be moved;

or:

Alleluia Jn 10:27

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
My sheep hear my voice, says the Lord;
I know them, and they follow me.

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel Jn 15:9-11

Jesus said to his disciples:
“As the Father loves me, so I also love you.
Remain in my love.
If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love,
just as I have kept my Father’s commandments
and remain in his love.

“I have told you this so that
my joy might be in you and
your joy might be complete.”

Talk 4 | More Than A Makeover

with  Bo Sanchez and Audee Villaraza – April 12, 2020

Talk 3, Saltshakers and Lampshades, dives in to the Sermon on the Mount – and our mission in this world. When you are unable to fulfill your God-purpose, your life is meaningless. When you are unable to connect with God-followers, you become open to sin. And when you share God’s love to others, healing and joy flows from your heart. As you carry God’s love in your life and become a God-carrier, you are able to fulfill God’s mission – to shine His light to the world.
