We pray for the dead, those still unaccounted for, the grieving, the injured and their family and friends who are waiting anxiously for news of them. We pray for those who are working around the clock to search for survivors, to recover the dead, and to account for the missing.
We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield
On this Independence Day let us remember all those who have sacrificed for our freedom, following the example of your Son, Jesus Christ. Let us not take freedom, both physical and spiritual, for granted. May we always remember that our freedom was purchases with a very high price which cost others their very lives.
Help us to live in a way that glorifies you, Lord. Give us the strength to be a blessing in someone else’s life today, and grant us the opportunity to lead others into the freedom that can be found in knowing Christ.
Blessings as we begin Summer. As we travel about on our vacations we need to remember to go to Mass. if we find ourselves on Sunday morning in a town with which we’re unfamiliar, we should do our best to locate a Catholic church and to attend Mass.
Mass is a gift we offer to God, a prayer of thangiving that avails us to gain strength, courage, hope, and wisdom from receiving Jesus in the Eucharist.
