First Scripture Reading: Isaiah 42: 1-7

In light of today's Scripture readings, Fr. Bob's Prayer is:
Holy God, Jesus is your servant and our Savior. With powerful gentleness he will establish Your reign of justice. He will abolish all darkness and division. In his sacrifice and surrender, You seal Your covenant of love with us, filling us with the light of Your presence. Jesus, Mary anoints you in preparation for your passing over. Judas disdains your priorities. I experience both loving Mary and suspicious Judas with me. Jesus, like Lazarus, lift me up. Take my hand and touch my heart so that I can humbly and faithfully walk with you into Jerusalem - and to God!
