Reflection by Ana Becerra, Mission Developer, Cristo Rey
Vaya con Dios is a common phrase we use in Spanish to send people out. My memory goes to a busy marketplace where “Vaya con Dios” is used among vendors and customers. You didn't have to know the person to give or receive this greeting. Every time I hear it, it reminds me I am loved and protected.
From Moses’ time to nowadays, we need to know and hear that God’s holy presence is with us every moment and at every place we have certaintyso it will be.
Prayer: Oh Lord, your love and protection go with us. Remind us of this when we feel anxious, scared, or lonely. Reveal to us your holy presence in ways that we can recognize. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
