Dearest Jesus,

Though this day and age is covered in and clouded by so much darkness, let me seek to see and be the Light:

the Light of Your Love.

In these times of so much weariness and worry, let me be

the staff of Your Comfort, the scepter of Your Strength,
the Light of Your Love.

In these times of so much extravagance and excess, let me be the garment of Your Poverty, the vestment of Your Simplicity,

the Light of Your Love.

In these times of so much disobedience and defeat, let me be the sandles of Your Perseverance, the ring of Your Faithfulness,

the Light of Your Love.

In these times of so much intemperance and intoxication, let me be the tunic of Your Temperance, the cloak of Your Sobriety,

the Light of Your Love.

In these times of so much impulsivity and impatience, let me be the sash of Your Self-Denial, the cloth of Your Self-Restraint,

the Light of Your Love.

In these times of so much injury and insult, let me be

the armor of Your Loyalty, the shield of Your Justice,
the Light of Your Love.

In these times of so much deception and dishonor, let me be

the the torch of Your Honesty, the badge of Your Honor,
the Light of Your Love.

In these times of so much sin and separation, let me be

the sword of Your Spirit, the helmet of Your Salvation,
the Light of Your Love.

In these times of so much egotism and evil, let me be

the robe of Your Majesty, the crown of Your Glory,
the Light of Your Love.

At a time when love seems to be disappearing from the earth and darkness covers the land…Lord Jesus Christ, Light of the World, illuminate me until I radiate You everywhere I go and in everything I do, so that everyone I meet may leave just a little better and brighter by Your Presence shining within me! Let there be Light!

Let there be Love!
Let me be the Light of Your Love!
Amen.

In the Light of Your Love,


Your Sinner, Servant, Soldier, Son…

Little Gregory
Your Beloved One

Verse:

It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon, for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.”
When he had said this, he breathed his last.
-Luke 23:44-46

Prayer:

“You expired, Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls, and the ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world. O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy, envelop the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us.
O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You! (x3)”
-Saint Faustina in her Diary, Divine Mercy in My Soul (1319, 187)
