Have you said ,”Thank You ,Jesus ” today? Do you remember the story of the ten lepers that were healed by Jesus in the gospel? Only one of them came to say thank you to Jesus.Do you remember what Jesus told? Let me remind you.
According to Luke 17:19.Jesus said to him, “Stand up and go ,your faith has saves you.” This means that while the other lepers got their physical cleansing ,the leper who went back also got spiritual liberation.
We too get spiritual liberation if we take time to thank Jesus everyday.We can do this in many different ways.We can do it by simply saying ,”Thank you ,Jesus” as many times as we can through out the day.This has the astonishing effect of making every situation better.It is our way of saying Jesus knows about our condition and telling Him to take absolute control.The spiritual healing which he gives to those who continually call on his name pervades everything we do for the rest of day.
Another way we can say thank you Jesus is to say the chaplet of Thank you ,Jesus one thousand (1,000) times every day.This chaplet consists of 200 beads and repeating this 5 times will get you to I000.This payer is a game changer as they say in the USA.
As you say it ,you will find it is both meditative and transformational.I use it to my morning exercise .I walk around saying Thank you Jesus, one thousand times.It clears up my head for the day and as Fr Mbaka likes to say it makes feel as if I have put myself inside Jesus.
The other good thing about this chaplet of Thank you Jesus which is also called the caplet of the Eucharist is that it can be used to say all the mysteries of the rosary,including the mystery of the light.This chaplet of Thank you Jesus was inspired by Our Lord Jesus Christ to Bishop Gabriel Gasum Ganaka of Blessed Memory.
Let us all say thank you to Jesus everyday for he knows all our problems.Those who say 1000 Thank You Jesus everyday can attest to the miracoulous difference this has made in their lives, why not try this and see what Jesus will do for you.
This chaplet is available in many parishes in Nigeria or you can buy the full -all mysteries- rosary from your local parish or catholic bookshop and use it for that.You can also place an order from the sister who first started making these chaplets in Nigeria.Either way, make sure you say thank you Jesus today.
