Every Sunday, The Risen Christ asks us to meet him as it were once more in the Upper Room where, on the evening of 'the first day of the week' he appeared to his disciples in order to 'breathe' on them his life-giving Spirit and launch them on the great adventure of proclaiming the Gospel. Father, bless all the people who see me. May they only see you in my actions Father, bless all the people who hear me speaking. May they only hear words that will help to build up your kingdom on earth. By my baptism you chose me to be your child and your witness to the world. Thank you for this great privilege.
