Daily Reflection with Fr. Tomas Del Valle-Reyes



Dear Friends: Praying is not easy. Our daily routine calls for our full attention. And the world around us puts little value on prayer; our lives are full of material things but at the same time are getting emptier in God’s value.

For this reason, I will post a daily reflection and as you visit this site may the Holy Spirit within you come to your aid and guide you gently to the God who loves you

The Blessed Trinity...

Invocation of the HOLY TRINITY:
In the name of the FATHER, and of the SON, and of the HOLY SPIRIT.
May the grace of our LORD JESUS CHRIST,
the LOVE of GOD our FATHER, and fellowship of the HOLY SPIRIT
be with you.
--Liturgy Introductory Rites: Greeting
Invocation of the Blessed Trinity
By St. Patrick
I bind unto myself this day
the strong name of the Trinity;
by invocation of the same,
the Three in One and One in Three.
Of whom all nature hath creation
Eternal Father, Spirit, Word,
Praise to the God of our salvation,
Salvation is of Christ the Lord.
Christ be with me, Christ within me,
Christ behind me, Christ before me,
Christ beside me, Christ to win me,Christ to comfort and restore me.
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger,
Christ in hearts of all that love me,
Christ on tongue of friend and stranger.
--Circe: 800 A.D.

IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD....

THE WORD BECAME FLESH...
In the beginning was the Word:
the Word was with God
and the Word was God.
He was with God in the beginning.
Through him all things came into being,
not one thing came into being except through him.
What has come into being in him was life, life that was the light of all;
and the light shines in darkness,
and darkness could not overpower it...
The Word was real light that gives light to everyone; he was coming into the world.
He was in the world that had come into being through him, and the world did not recognize him.
He came to his own and his own people did not accept him.
But to those who did accept him
he gave power to become children of
God, to those who believed in his name
who were born not from human stock or human desire or human will but from God himself.
THE WORD BECAME FLESH, and lived among us, and we saw his glory,
the glory that he has from the Father as only Son of the Father,
full of grace and truth.--John 1:1-5;9-14

    1 corinthians 13:1-13

    If I speak in the tongues of men and angels, but have not love,
    I have become sounding brass or a tinkling symbol.

    And if I have prophecy and know all mysteries and
    all knowledge, and if I have all faith so as to remove mountains,
    but have not love, I am nothing.
    And if I dole out all my goods, and
    if I deliver my body that I may boast
    but have not love, nothing I am profited.

    Love is long suffering,
    love is kind,
    it is not jealous,
    love does not boast,
    it is not inflated.
    It is not discourteous,
    it is not selfish,
    it is not irritable,
    it does not enumerate the evil.

    It does not rejoice over the wrong,
    but rejoices in the truth
    It covers all things, it has faith for all things,
    it hopes in all things, it endures in all things.
    Love never falls in ruins;
    but whether prophecies, they will be abolished; or
    tongues, they will cease; or
    knowledge, it will be superseded.
    For we know in part and we prophecy in part.
    But when the perfect comes, the imperfect will be superseded.
    When I was an infant,
    I spoke as an infant, I reckoned as an infant;
    when I became [an adult],
    I abolished the things of the infant.
    For now we see through a mirror in an enigma, but then face to face.
    Now I know in part, but then I shall know
    as also I was fully known.
    But now remains faith, hope, love, these three;
    but the greatest of these is love.

    We give you thanks

    Almighty God, we give you thanks for your unconditional love, as night approaches and light fades away, I want to take a moment and thank you for this day; and implore your great mercy that, as you always enfold us with the radiance of this light from heaven above, so you would shine into our hearts the brightness of your Holy Spirit; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
    Grant us, Lord, the lamp of charity which never fails, that it may burn in us and shed its light on those around us, and that by its brightness we may have a vision of that holy City, where dwells the true and never-failing Light, Jesus Christ our Lord and the virgin Mary, your Mother.
    O Lord God Almighty, as you have taught us to call the evening, the morning, and the noonday one day; and have made the sun to know its going down: Dispel the darkness of our hearts, that by your brightness we may know you to be the true God and eternal light, living and reigning for ever and ever.
    Seek him who made the Pleiades and Orion, and turns deep darkness into the morning, and darkens the day into night; who calls for the waters of the sea and pours them out upon the surface of the earth: The Lord is his name. Amen.
