PREPARATION FOR THE SACRAMENT

Read one of the following Scripture texts and consider what the Lord is saying to you through the Good News. Then pray for the gift of a contrite heart. A sample prayer is included. Jesus saw a tax collector named Levi sitting at his customs post. He said to him, “Follow me”. Leaving everything behind, Levi stood up and became His follower. After that Levi gave a great reception for Jesus in his house, where he was joined by a large crowd of tax collectors and others at dinner. The Pharisees and the Scribes of their party said to the disciples, “Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and non-observers of the law?” Jesus said to them, “The healthy do not need a doctor; sick people do. I have not come to invite the self-righteous to a change of heart, but sinners.” (Luke 5:2 7:32)
