Lord, You who traveled with two disciples to Emmaus after Your resurrection and through this set their hearts on fire with Your grace, travel also with all those who travel at this time and gladden their hearts with Your presence.

We know, Lord, that we are pilgrims on this earth, seeking the citizenship that is in heaven. During our journeys surround us with Your holy angels and keep us safe from seen and unseen dangers.

Grant that we may carry out our plans according to Your will.

Help us to see the beauty of Your creation and to comprehend the wonder of Your Truth in all things.

For You are the way, the truth, and the life, and to you do we give thanks, praise, and glory forever. Amen.
"As the sparrow flees from a hawk, so the man seeking humility flees from an argument". St John Climacus

Lord have mercy.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Amen. Lord have mercy.
