Oh holy Christ, your life was perfect in constancy. You have never failed those who loved you, for your love is eternal, perfect and unfailing.

You never change, never weaken, never vary. Teach me the steadfastness of your love, mighty Savior.

Teach me your humility, your selflessness. Teach me to be a devoted servant.

Look with grace, I pray, on my small and tarnished loving; protect it, foster it, strengthen it, that my love may be less unworthy to be offered to you and to your children.

O Light of the world, teach me how to love.

Amen.

Scripture for Today: Genesis 1:20-25 ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ™

And God said, โ€œLet the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the heavens.โ€

So God created the great sea creatures and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

And God blessed them, saying, โ€œBe fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.โ€

And there was evening and there was morning, the fifth day.

And God said, โ€œLet the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds โ€” livestock and creeping things and beasts of the earth according to their kinds.โ€ And it was so.

And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kinds and the livestock according to their kinds, and everything that creeps on the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
