"I have glorified You on the earth by completing the work that You gave Me to do. Now, Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory and majesty that I had with You before the world existed.
“I have manifested Your name to the people whom You have given Me out of the world; they were Yours and You gave them to Me, and they have kept and obeyed Your word."
Reflection from Lino and Xiomara:
Our Lord Jesus continues to be a unique example of prayer. Jesus prayed for himself when his mission on earth was getting closer to culminate. At the same time he prayed for us, to free us from the influence of evil. Jesus cries out to the Father because at the end of his mission on earth he wants to be one with the Father. The unconditional love of our Lord Jesus has no limits, He advocates for us before the Father Jehovah. For his love for us.
Leaving the legacy of his promise, God’s love lives in our mind, soul and body. The Holy Spirit will dwell within us forever. Jesus promised us eternal life, and to succeed we need to find a personal encounter with God. Jesus is our only antecessor before the Father. In order to get to the Father, Jesus showed us the way to succeed by carrying our own cross with sacrifice deep in God’s love. As our Lord Jesus did, to sacrifice his life for his unconditional love for humanity.
I hope that this season of Lent can guide us to reflect in our accountability as Christians to carry the cross that Jesus carried for you and me. WE have to take the cross of those who suffered, those who cried, for those who suffered famine, and for those that need God’s Word and promises. Lent season will be always a time to reflect on God unconditionally, and our accountability to renounce ourselves, we surrender to God’s Will and continue to spread the good news of the Gospel preparing the way to God’s Kingdom. Amen.
Thank you, Almighty Father, for giving us Jesus Christ, your only son. Thank you, God, for your sacrifice and suffering on the cross for us. Thank you, God, for blessing us with the presence of Jesus Christ in our lives. God, help us to be loyal, humble and faithful. God, help us to love our neighbors and enemies. Thank you, God, for you unconditional love
