Showing the Glory of Christ in Us

Chosen & Precious

Seventh Sunday of Easter, Year A

It is time to turn back to the one who is “chosen and precious,” except, as you’ll see, he turns it back to us. Even when talking about himself, his own glory, he turns back to us. It’s amazing, really. in this moment, you’d think he would be focused on himself. But even in the final moments on this earth, we’re the objects of his attention and his prayer.

Offertory Prayer

God of Glory and Majesty, we have seen your glory in Christ, for it shines in our lives through the faithful who have walked with us on this journey. In seeing Christ’s glory in them, we have seen you. As we bring our gifts to you, remind us that the world will not see you and your glory unless they see it in each of us. Remind us as we move through each day that all around us are your children who are desperately searching for a glimpse of your holy presence and love. May they see it in us today. In the holy name of Christ, our Savior. Amen. (John 17:1-11)

Oraciones para ofrendar

Dios de Gloria y Majestad, hemos visto tu gloria en Cristo, porque brilla en nuestras vidas a TRAVES de los fieles que han caminado con nosotros en este viaje de fe. Al ver la gloria de Cristo en ellos, te hemos visto a ti. Mientras traemos nuestras ofrendas, te pedimos nos ayudes a recordar que el mundo no te vera ni vera tu gloria al menos que lo vean en cada uno de nosotros. Ayúdanos a recordar que cada día tus hijos alrededor nuestro buscan desesperadamente el ver tu santa presencia y amor en nosotros. Que vean tu amor en nosotros es nuestra oración. En el santo nombre de Cristo, nuestro Salvador. Amén (Juan 17:1-11).
