We invite you to take 3 minutes in prayer with us. Pause, Read, Reflect…
Take a moment to center yourself. Focus on your breath. As you breathe in, invite God in — His love, His goodness — and repeat the phrase, “I am beloved” — realizing with every breath God’s incredible love for you.
Our Gospel today: MK 12:13-17
Some Pharisees and Herodians were sent to Jesus to ensnare him in his speech. They came and said to him, “Teacher, we know that you are a truthful man and that you are not concerned with anyone’s opinion. You do not regard a person’s status but teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. Is it lawful to pay the census tax to Caesar or not? Should we pay or should we not pay?” Knowing their hypocrisy he said to them, “Why are you testing me? Bring me a denarius to look at.” They brought one to him and he said to them, “Whose image and inscription is this?” They replied to him, “Caesar’s.” So Jesus said to them, “Repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God.” They were utterly amazed at him.
- What is God speaking to me about through this Gospel?

Lord my God, help me give to You all of me.
