Saturday 2nd Easter
A Pilgrim's Daily Prayer
Called through the Word to the everlasting journey in the Spirit
from nothingness to union with the One who is the Beginning and the End
Giovanni Battista Piazzetta:
Saturday of the Second Week of Easter: The Call to Service of Others
Father, in the course of the journey towards you who are our only true future, it is often the case that we unfortunately ignore the interests and well-being of some of our sisters and brothers journeying along with us. In the apostolic Church that was the case in Jerusalem with Christians of Hellenic origin. To address their needs Seven were appointed and ordained to serve them, those we often recognize today as the first deacons.
