Last Sunday Pope Francis invited parishioners in one of his diocesan parishes to engage their imaginations in prayer. He then gave them a practical experience of this prayer. During the brief homily he invited the people:
“…let us close our eyes and imagine that scene, on the bank of the river, John who is baptizing and Jesus who is passing by. And let us hear John’s voice: “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.” We look at Jesus and, in silence, each one of us will say something to Jesus from his heart, in silence. [Silent pause]
May the Lord Jesus, who is meek and good – He is a lamb – who came to take sins away, accompany us on the path of our life. So be it”.
