Daily Prayer: Lord, self-sacrifice is anathema to us
Twenty-fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Lord, self-sacrifice is anathema to us, for we are so caught up in the world. Your apostles were shocked to know of your fate and did not want to believe it, for the reality of what is necessary for salvation is troubling to many. Yet let us not be so caught up in this world, let us instead follow your example, Lord Christ, and give all that we are for the betterment of others. Amen.
Psalms 116:1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 8-9
