Today January 30th is always a special day in my life. One hundred and five years ago my father was born. Now he only made it through 67 of those years but that was enough to fall in love with my mother and together they by the grace of God gave life to three children who are most grateful for their love and the gift of life! So, Dad, Happy Birthday Day and thanks!

Today’s Blessing Prayer: Tuesday greetings and blessings to all I hope your Tuesday is starting off well. Wherever you are and whatever you are doing I pray, and hope life is good for you today[PRF1] !
Today is the feast day of St. Thomas Aquinas, the great Dominican philosopher, theologian, philosophers, thinker, and teacher so I send a shout out to all Dominicans, theologians, philosophers, thinkers and teachers today, especially to the Aquinas Institute of Theology in St. Louis. Happy Feast Day to all and may the spirit of St. Thomas Aquinas be with you as you journey through life and in your ministry and work today!
My prayer of blessing is once again simple I pray today for God’s blessing upon all of us and I pray in the hope everyone will have a great Tuesday. However, if our day has started slow, or disorganized, or in a panic, or challenged by the weather, may we not worry, and may it all come together by day's end! If our day started with peace and purpose may these two graces, see us through to the end of the day! If our day started with struggle and tension may we find moments of peace and calm that sustain us through the day. If our day has started without God, may we let God find us so that we will not walk and work alone! Blessings to all! Peace in Christ's Passion...Fr. Paul
Today’s Prayer: Grant, O Lord our God, that we may never fall away in success or in failure; that we may not be prideful in prosperity nor dejected in adversity. Let us rejoice only in what unites us and sorrow only in what separates us. May we strive to please no one or fear to displease anyone except You. May we see always the things that are eternal and never those that are only temporal. May we shun any joy that is without You and never seek any that is beside You. O Lord, may we delight in any work we do for You and tire of any rest that is apart from You. Loving God, let us direct our hearts towards You, and in our failings, always repent with a purpose of amendment. Amen! (Adapted from a prayer by St. Thomas Aquinas)

I am very grateful to my niece Bridget, for taking the time and expense of journeying to New York and spending sometime with her old uncle. It was a very nice weekend. I am glad she made it back to Minneapolis safely late last night and I would like to thank her for the gift of presence that she gave me this weekend!

Today's Prayer: May there be peace within today and every day. May we trust God that we are exactly where we are meant to be. May we not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith. May we use those gifts that we have received and pass on the love that has been given to us. May we be confident knowing that we are a child of God. Let this presence settle into our bones and allow our soul the freedom to sing dance, praise and love. It is there for every one of us. Amen! (Adapted from a Prayer by St Therese of Lisieux)
