Teach Me Your Ways
Pedro Arrupe, S.J.

Teach me Your way of looking at people:
as You glanced at Peter after his denial,
as You penetrated the heart of the rich young man
and the hearts of Your disciples.

I would like to meet You as You really are,
since Your image changes those with whom You
come into contact.
Remember John the Baptist’s first meeting with You?
And the centurion’s feeling of unworthiness?
And the amazement of all those who saw miracles
and other wonders?

How You impressed Your disciples,
the rabble in the Garden of Olives,
Pilate and his wife
and the centurion at the foot of the cross. . . .

I would like to hear and be impressed
by Your manner of speaking,
listening, for example, to Your discourse in the
synagogue in Capharnaum
or the Sermon on the Mount where Your audience
felt You “taught as one who has authority.”

Teach me Your way O Lord!
Amen

Passionate Catholic. Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and bless you 🙏
