Today’s Prayer: St. Augustine tells us that understanding is the reward given by faith so we should not try to understand in order to believe, but we should believe in order to understand.
So, we pray to you our loving God for the grace that will help us to always believe. Enliven us when we are weak with the strength to believe in your healing way and so that we may always live a holy way of life. Grant us the wisdom to recognize your presence in our lives that comes from within us and others. Be always near to us that when necessary we may take comfort in your love! Amen!
Today’s Blessing Prayer: Thursday greetings and blessings to all. My prayer of blessing today is that all of us remain focused on our faith, on our relationship with and on all the wonderful things God has done for us. May we never give in to hopelessness and look elsewhere to a god the world creates. Many blessing to all today, success in your endeavors, safety in your travels and many experiences of God’s presence throughout the day! Peace in Christ’s Passion…Fr. Paul
Today’s Prayer: Compassionate God, at times our hearts get out of focus. When this happens everything becomes an effort, life is difficult and we struggle to be faithful. In these moments remind me of your Son’s words “For human beings it is impossible, but not for God. All things are possible for God” Do not let us be afraid and thus give in to life’s troubles and create our own molten calf. Rather help us, stay close to you, by reaching out to others, doing something creative with passion, and always living the fullness of life. Enliven us always in your Holy Spirit of hope, so that we may live life with Passion. And may the Passion of Jesus Christ be always in our hearts! Amen.
Today’s Blessing Prayer: Wednesday greetings and blessings to all. My prayer of blessing today goes out to everyone that you may encounter the love of God in some special way today; through the gesture of another person, through an experience of life, through an encounter with God within yourself. May God’s love enliven a well-spring of joy within you that you can share with all you meet today. And may you find the joy and mercy of God within you and share it with the world! May today be a day of many blessings and a day without too much stress! Peace in Christ’s Passion…Fr. Paul
Today’s Prayer: O God, you call us to be in love with you just as you are in love with us. Give us the grace to not be afraid of your gifts of love and mercy in our lives. Help us not to fear your invitation to intimacy and may we never hesitate to share your love with another. Grant us the strength to never forget the tenderness of your joyful loving presence and to trust that you will bring us home. Amen!
Today’s Blessing Prayer: Tuesday greetings and blessings to all. I hope your Tuesday is or has started off well. My prayer of blessing today is that you will have a great day, with many blessings.

Have a great day everyone and may God’s blessing be with you! Peace in Christ’s Passion…Fr. Paul
Today’s Prayer: Lord Jesus, you were rich, yet, for our sakes, you became poor. You promised that whatever is done for the least of your sisters and brothers is done for you. Give us grace to be always willing to provide for the needs of others, that your kingdom of service, mercy and love may extend throughout the world. Amen (Adapted from a prayer by St. Augustine of Hippo)
