I pray to become a Catholic believing that although the sweeter than honey taste of God’s promise will turn sour in my stomach by the “Shameless aggression” found on “computers and mobile devices”; I still hear the Lord’s voice and follow Him recalling his promise that His house shall be a house of prayer!!!

R. (103a) How sweet to my taste is your promise!

sweeter than honey to my mouth!

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

My sheep hear my voice, says the Lord;

I know them, and they follow me.

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

“…My house shall be a house of prayer,

LK 19:46
