Ask and you shall receive...
In today's Gospel Jesus says: "Ask and you shall receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you."
Then, to make this a sure thing, Jesus adds: "For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened."
Lord, I believe You! However, sometimes it seems as if we need to keep on asking, seeking, and knocking. You seem to like persistence!
What do I really want? What is it that I ask, seek, and knock for today?
The Prayer after Communion may answer my question: "Almighty God, in this eucharist you give us the joy of sharing your life. Keep us in your presence. Let us never be separated from you. We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord. Amen."
