Today’s Blessing Prayer: Thursday greetings and blessings to all. On this Feast of the Visitation I send special greetings to all mothers, especially those who are carrying life at this time or those who are hoping and praying to have the chance to carry new life but are struggling to do so at this time. Through the spirit of Elizabeth and Mary I ask God’s blessing upon all mothers for the gifts of hope and love that you give to the world. Mothers are truly special people. May those who want to be mothers be touched in a special way today by the spirits of Mary and Elizabeth, remember nothing is impossible for God!
As the day begins here in Pelham it looks to be another cloudy uncertain kind of day. I believe there is rain in the forecast, but we also might see some sun. I hope your weather is providing you with a good day on this last day of May.
My prayer of blessing for all today is that you will have a great Thursday. I pray for blessings upon your work, your ministry, and your experiences of life today and always. I also pray for blessings upon those you love, those your encounter and especially upon you today! Peace in Christ’s Passion…Fr. Paul
Today’s Prayer: Loving God, we come to you this day as a people in need of hope. There are times when because of the experiences of life, we feel helpless, we feel weak and overwhelmed. So today we pray for your gift of hope. We need hope so that we might build a better future. We need hope that we might live a better life. We need hope that we might be a people of love and kindness.
It is often said that the sky is at its darkest just before the light. And so, we pray that this is true, because often life seems dark and we need your light, O God, in every way. We pray that we will be filled with your light from head to toe. So that we might find the joy and hope that Elizabeth found when she was visited by Mary. That we might say with excitement not frustration or struggle, how does this life happen to me?
Help us to be people of hope today that all is right in the world, as you have planned, and as you want it to be. Help us to walk in your light and live our lives in faith and hope. Amen!

Today’s Prayer: Compassionate God, at times our hearts seems troubled. When this happens everything becomes an effort, life is difficult, and we struggle to be faithful. In these moments remind us 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. 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 together. And may the Passion of Jesus Christ be always in my heart! Amen.
