Meditation on the Freedom of Obedience
Obedience frees us to experience the joy of life.
O Generous & Loving Father,
Your son, Jesus, gave his life for us in Holy Obedience to Your divine will. Thank You for the sacrifice of Your Son.
Help us to have the strength and wisdom to submit in Holy Obedience to Your Will and those you place in charge of us. Grant in us a strong trust of those whom You wish us to obey.
Provide us the knowledge to know what is right from wrong, resist immoral orders, and submit in Holy Obedience.
Grant us holy people in our lives with whom You can ask us to obey, that they might help us live in lives to the fullest and come closer to You. Help us always to be in holy obedience to the Church, trusting that the Church will lead us right and that You, God, guide the Church in its actions.
Help us to surrender those things you do not want us to have, such as worries, fears, anxieties, sinful things, or those things that lead us to sin.
Help us to understand the freedom we gain through obedience and joy of holy obedience. Transform us to seek to live in Holy Obedience.
