NOVENA OF TRUST - Day Six
"From the rebellion against childlike dependency on You.
Deliver me, Jesus."
This morning as I prayed this petition a scene from a movie I recently watched came to my thoughts.
The scene is three brothers on a battlefield, all three are wounded but two are seriously wounded. One of the young men, as he lies suffering on the ground, looks to his brother and simply says,
"I want Mom."
This "childlike" heart of knowing where our comfort comes from should indeed be the heart that we have for God our Father. He is our strength in all of life's struggles and joys; He is always with us; no further away than a thought or a whisper.
The Entrance Antiphon of today's Mass is appropriate:
"To you I call; for you will surely heed me, O God; turn your ear to me; hear my words. Guard me as the apple of your eye; in the shadow of your wings protect me."
May we turn to God today with childlike hearts filled with longing for His love! May we bring our needs and the needs of others before Him, knowing that He desires what is best for us.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us.
