Tuesday 18th Ord I
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

Tuesday of the Eighteenth week in Ordinary Time: Direct Access to God
And the Lord said, ‘Hear my words:
Let us pray.
Father, when first we realized that you speak to us, we thought that it had to be through intermediaries, angels, even Moses, or through dreams and visions, but in the Lord Jesus Christ, your Word made flesh, we have come to understand that you speak directly to each one of us, once and for all, in every moment. In your same Word we all have direct access to you without intermediary. May we be every responsive to your Word always present to us. May we grow constantly in our understanding and in our acceptance of your life offered to all.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
