Making a Joyful Noise through Holy Week – 04/16/2014
Daily Blessing: Greetings to everyone on this Spy Wednesday! I hope you are having a good day. I would like to send a shout out to all the people who made the retreat at Notre Dame of Mount Carmel Parish. It was a wonderful four days there and a great spirit during the retreat. I would also like to thank the staff for being so hospitable and all the families who hosted me for dinner each night. I have never eaten so well in my preaching travels.
Daily Holy Week Prayer: At the name of Jesus every knee must bend in heaven, on earth and under the earth and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father! Loving God, help us to always be faithful and may the gods of the world not temp us into betraying our friendship with you. Grace us with the strength to always trust in your presence especially when we struggle. Help us to keep hope and joy alive through your word and sacrament! Amen!
A Runner’s Thoughts: If, in running we desire is to connect with God, to pray, then that is what we are doing. Keeping that desire at the forefront of our thoughts and remaining conscious of our intent is very important. Remember seek God and you will find God in every good thing!

Daily Blessing: Blessings on this Tuesday of Holy Week everyone! I hope your day is starting out well. It looks like rain here and they say we will be getting a little cooler over the next few days. I have to say I really enjoyed the last few days, the sun, the warmth. Hopefully this coolness will not last too long. It would be nice to see the sun and feel the warmth again on Easter Sunday! Whether your day is warm and sunny or rainy may it be one touch by God’s joy!
