#Fast4Life Holy Thursday

Today, in our #Fast4Life, we think about and pray for the elderly, especially those abandoned by family and friends. One of the things Jesus taught us at the Last Supper, was how to lead. Through washing the apostles' feet, Jesus showed us that to lead is to serve, to serve is to love.

Prayer: Lord, teach us humility. Show us where we need to be more loving and more willing to serve. In our fast-pace society, we are often so concerned about efficiency, being effective with all our tasks. Help us, Lord, to take time to be affective - to allow others' lives to affect us. Teach us to slow down and learn, once more, to listen to the elderly in our life, just appreciate and love who they are. We ask this in Your holy name, Amen.

For the sake of His sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
