Grant O Lord the grace to understand the essence of faith as not the external practices and rituals but understanding the core of faith as loving our fellow men and women. This is true faith and to live accordingly is true religion. May this understanding sink into all the followers of religion everywhere in the world especially in those areas where people are killing and torturing people belonging to a different religion. Hear our prayer, Lord of love and unity. Amen.
In the Acts of the Apostles, Saul shows what love calls for. He continues to proclaim the fact that he has met the Lord though no one trusts him and some even want to kill him. That is the basic vocation to which all followers of Jesus are called.
