Prayer by Jonathan Montaldo


The “word” that Saint Anthony, the hermit,

heard in the liturgy that changed his life was your command:

“If you would be my disciple,

give up everything you have and come follow me.”

Lord Jesus, give me a “word” for my salvation.

Celebrating Eucharist, all of us listening together for a “word,”

let me hear what you demand of me at this moment in my life,

at this stage of my journey toward maturity in Christ.

Next Sunday, and every Sunday,

keep me attentive to your “word” for me.
