Blessed Emmanuel Ruiz and companions
"Seek always the face of the Lord." Unfortunately, the children of Isreal didn't always seek the Lord and instead worshiped pagan gods. Yet God calls them back through the prophets time and time again.
One more thing: Jesus holds out hope for the people of Israel to finally answer his call. He sends his apostles to specifically find the lost sheep of his flock with which he has a covenant. God desperately wants the Israelites to turn back to him. He feels the same way about us. If you have drifted from the Lord, he wants you back. Not only that, he is seeking you! This is your call to renew your relationship with God!
Prayer: Father in heaven, thank you for your endless mercy despite my many faults. I want you to be an integral part of my life and my vocation as a mom. Lead me to you, Lord. Send your Holy Spirit to be with me as my guide. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen. Blessed Emmanuel Ruiz, pray for me.
