When you fed the 5,000 you first gave thanks to our Creator and yours. You thanked God for using you as an instrument to show others the power of sharing physical food so that each could have the strength to continue the divine quest.
When you cured ten lepers, remember only one came back to give thanks. You were disappointed in the other nine. Help us to always give thanks to you and our God, who lights our way and provides the Holy Spirit to comfort and guide us.
Finally, when you celebrated your last Passover meal with your closest friends, you took bread and wine and gave thanks. You offer these to us now holding the same force and presence of the Creator as seen in your very body and blood when you walked the earth.
Jesus, help us to thank you for showing us a way of life lived showing others the divine presence. Help us to be grateful in saying Thy Will Be Done. And we accept with gratitude your prayer, “Peace Be with You.”
All now please say together “Amen.”
