Today’s Blessing Prayer: Tuesday greetings and blessings to all! I hope your Tuesday has started off well. It is supposed to be a rainy day here in the New York area.

My prayer of blessing today is that God will bless us all with the energy, the spirit and the enthusiasm to continue with hope this journey of Easter and life. That God will bless us with a joy for life, for others and for ourselves. And that whatever we do, wherever we go, whomever we meet will be touched by the joy and mercy that we bring! Have a great Tuesday everyone and may your day be blessed with the warmth of the sun but if you find a few drops of rain coming down when you walk out the door may it be soft gentle rain that lovingly softens the earth and you! Peace in Christ’s Passion and the Risen Lord...Fr. Paul
Spirit of Christ, bless us.
Body of Christ, save us.
Blood of Christ, enliven us.
Water from the side of Christ, wash us.
Passion of Christ, strengthen us.
O good Jesus, hear us.
Within your wounds, hide us.
Never let us be separated from you.
From the evil foe, defend us.
At the hour of death, call us; and welcome us into your Kingdom.
That with your saints we may praise you forever and ever. Amen.

I pray your Monday and week will not be as busy.

Today’s Prayer: Loving God, give us grace to walk humbly today, and save us from self-importance and every condescending folly. You have made us, and not we ourselves. Help us to remember the limits of our power and our wisdom, but help us, also, to live our lives to the fullest within the limits of our power and wisdom. Amen! (Adapted from a prayer by Reinhold Niebuhr)

I pray that God will bless you Sunday with the richness of the mercy and joy of Risen Christ and the joy of God’s merciful love.

May the God who so loves us that he gave us his only Son touch you with that love today and always. And through the joyous grace of Christ may God lead you to the banquet of lasting joy. Amen – Alleluia!

Today’s Blessing Prayer: Friday greetings and blessings to all! I hope your Friday is starting off well. It is a very rainy morning here in the New York area. I pray the weather is a little nice by you today. Though earlier this morning as I sat in prayer, I noticed the rain coming down and though to myself that sometimes rain has a beauty and I guess the April showers of this morning reminded me of the May flowers that they will bring! Enjoy your Friday everyone regardless of the weather.
I pray for all of you today that you will once again be touch by the joy of Easter. May you be gifted with many life-giving experiences, with many encounters of God through the people you meet. May you have safe travels if you are traveling and may you be gifts with much joy and peace as you journey through this day! God's Easter blessings to all today! Peace in Christ's Passion and the Joy of the Risen Lord...Fr. Paul
Fr. Paul R. Fagan, C.P.
A prayer or two to help you through your day!
