Song of worship related to the Word of God.
Moment of silence to become aware of the presence of Jesus the Good Shepherd in the Host.
Short prayer in which I recognize that I am a sinner and that I cannot pray without the help of the Holy Spirit.
Prayer of adoration
I adore Emmanuel for what he is in himself: the Son of the Father, the Good Shepherd, etc. I praise for its many attributes: humility, gentleness, patience, tenderness, mercy.
I listen to the voice of the Shepherd
Reading of a Word of God (choice according to the liturgy or other)
I stop at one or two passages and “ruminate” on them in a low voice.
This is the food of the Good Shepherd.
Lord Jesus, feed me with your life
The Good Shepherd gives his Life for me in the Host.
I tell him about my needs and those of others.
I let him act in me as he pleases.
Here I am, I am your sheep
I am silent in love. I offer myself to him as a host in all that I am, in all that I live. I offer him the world.
Prayer of the adoring Shepherd
Song of blessing
May the Lord bless you and keep you!
O Jesus, Divine Pastor of my soul,
I believe in you,
and I surrender in your hands.
May your crook lead me
in all your ways.
So that the Father’s will
come true in me completely,
I offer myself to You as I am,
in all of my being
and of my existence.
By the help of Saint Mary and
of Saint Joseph,
make me remain delivered to you,
now and every day. Amen.
