Guide us with your love so that everything we do will show the saving power of God. Amen!
Today’s Blessing Prayer: Monday greetings and blessings to everyone! I know that is not always the case, often we don't want the weekend to end and Mondays to arrive. We don't like how we feel when we get up on Monday mornings having to face a new week, but Happy Monday anyway! I hope you will all have a good week rich in many positive experiences and encounters with positive people.
I made it through Sunday with three faith filled celebrations of mass that were alive and life giving. I ask your prayers for the faith community at St. Francis of Assisi and for their preacher. May this be a good three days for them and me!

Today’s Prayer: Great and awesome God, bless us today with the gifts of your mercy and forgiveness not just for our own lives but that these gifts will be alive within us. Help us to be your disciples who bring a positive attitude and voice to the world today. Grace us with the wisdom to find the goodness in ourselves and the people we encounter. Guide us so that we do not respond to a negative with a negative. Make us workers who help to build your peaceable Kingdom as we live our life today! Amen!
Today’s Blessing Prayer: Sunday greetings and blessings to all. It is an early Sunday morning for me. In a about an hour I will be heading out to St. Francis of Assisi Church in Mount Kisco, NY about 25 miles from here to preach the 7:30 am mass and three other masses. It will be a long day but one that I am sure will be filled with energy and spirit.
I hope today will be a day of rest for you, though I know many of you have busy lives and today might include some busyness. If so I hope you find at least a little time of rest during the day!
I ask your prayers for the faith community here at St. Francis of Assisi Parish, and for their preacher that we might be gifted with a journey to the mountain top these next few days as we celebrate a time of mission.
My prayer of blessing is that today will offer all of us the opportunity to be blessed with a restful and peaceful day that will nourishes and refreshes us for the journey of a new week and whatever it brings to our life! I hope and pray that you find a little time for God today and when you do may you be blessed with the richness of God’s presence, grace, mercy and everlasting love. Remember as we hear in the Responsorial Psalm today, let us “walk before the Lord, in the land of the living.” From my perspective it is a wonderful thought with which to begin a new day! Peace in Christ's Passion...Fr. Paul
Today’s Prayer: Loving God, you invite us to listen to and walk with your chosen Son, Jesus. Nourish us today with his Word and Eucharist that we might have the spiritual sight and hearing that only a life of faith can bring. Help us to rejoice in the hope of your presence in our life. Grace us with your love that we may always hear your voice and see your face and live with you as our light and salvation. Bless us with a faith that always keeps us amazed and open to your loving presence. Amen!

Once again, I ask for your prayers, prayers for the community of faith at St. Francis of Assisi Parish and for the preacher who will be leading them in this time of mission. For those in the area the mission will be Monday thru Wednesday at 8:00 am and 7:00 pm. If you are in the area come and join us!
My prayer of blessing on this Saturday is that your love may more and more abound both in understanding and wealth of experience and that through the blessings of God love and mercy you will always value the things that really matter.

Today’s Prayer: Loving God, help us to live by your words. Guide us in the way of compassion, respect, caring, forgiving and love. Keep us focused on Jesus' way of disarming the evil in our life. Do not let us give in to the world’s view of power, might and right. Grace us so we can forgive when forgiveness is needed. Grace us with the humility to seek forgiveness when we have hurt others. Renew in us the Spirit of your love so that we might see today as the acceptable time to live by your words! Amen!
Fr. Paul R. Fagan, C.P.
A prayer or two to help you through your day!
