Tuesday 24th 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 Twenty-fourth week in Ordinary Time: New Life is Offered Through Christ at Every Moment
Then Jesus came forward and touched the bier, and the bearers stood still. And he said, ‘Young man, I say to you, rise (NRSV, Luke 7:14)!’
Let us pray.
Father, every moment, not only from the womb, is a moment of new life. The Word, now Christ made flesh, meets us in every situation and challenges us to accept, to grow, to be reborn ever more fully, in your divine life. May we always say “yes,” turning away from sin to accept forgiveness, reconciliation, and new life.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
