Praying with windows, day 3

"When the time came for their purification according to the law of Moses, they brought him up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord" (Luke 2:22).

"Cuando llegó el momento de su purificación de acuerdo con la ley de Moisés, lo trajeron a Jerusalén para presentarlo al Señor" (Lucas 2, 22).

Joseph and Mary took their child to be presented to God. For Christians, this presentation happens at the Rite of Baptism; we are presented to God, to be incorporated into the Body of Christ. Throughout our lives we are presented on other occasions, to other communities. As adults, we present ourselves to our families, friends, our colleagues, to our professional acquaintances. This time of quaratine is a good time to ask ourselves, "How do my words and actions present myself?" God, give me the grace to be patient, loving, and compassionate. Let others see you in me. Help me to be forgiving, and help me to ask for forgiveness. In all that I say, and in all that I do, Let others see you in me.

José y María llevaron a su hijo para ser presentado a Dios. Para los Cristianos, esta presentación ocurre en el Rito del Bautismo; somos presentados a Dios, para ser incorporados al Cuerpo de Cristo. A lo largo de nuestras vidas nos presentan en otras ocasiones, a otras comunidades. Como adultos, nos presentamos a nuestras familias, amigos, colegas, a nuestros conocidos profesionales. Este tiempo de cuarantena es un buen momento para preguntarnos: "¿Cómo se presentan mis palabras y acciones?"

Dios, dame la gracia de ser paciente, amoroso y compasivo. Deja que otros te vean en mí. Ayúdame a perdonar y ayúdame a pedir perdón. En todo lo que digo, y en todo lo que hago, Deja que otros te vean en mí.
