Today’s Blessing Prayer: Monday greetings and blessings to all! I hope you had a great weekend and that your Monday is starting off well. It is going to be a busy day and week as I try to catch-up from my week away and prepare to hit the road again next week. I knew the summer was going to fly by. Why to winters drag and summers fly?
My prayer of blessing today is that this will be a good and productive day and week for us wherever we are and whatever we are and/or will be doing. May we find some time to enjoy the gift of God’s creation and may whatever challenges we face be solved quickly and in a positive life-giving way. Enjoy your day and blessings to all! Peace in Christ’s Passion…Fr. Paul
Today’s Prayer: Loving God, we thank you for wanting to enter our lives. Help us to let go of the things we think are so important, yet they always seem to stand in the way of your presence in our lives. Grace us with the strength to open the door of our hearts today, so that as we ask you to come in nothing will stand in the way of our love for you. We want you to make our hearts your home, today and always. Amen!
Today’s Blessing Prayer: Sunday greetings and blessings to all and Happy Feast of the Most Holy Trinity and Happy Father’s Day to all fathers!

In a few moments I will head out to the Church of St. John and St. Mary in Chappaqua, NY for the 7:30 am mass. Remember to give God a little time today too!
Again, Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers! I would like to remember my own father today in a specially way. He has been gone physically many years now, but he is always with me in a spiritual sense. I greatly appreciate his spirit in my life, and may his everlasting spirit continue to guide and love me! May all fathers be blessed today and always with the eternal Spirit of our Father in heaven his only Son and Holy Spirit. Have a great day everyone.
My prayer of blessing today is that we will all be blessed with the spirit of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit to help us on this journey of life.

Today’s Blessing Prayer: Saturday greetings and blessings to all! I hope your Saturday is off and running or walking or resting in a good way. It is an early morning for me.

Today’s Prayer: God of all life, there are days when the burdens we carry weigh heavy on our shoulders and wear us down; when roads seem long, dreary and endless, the skies gray and threatening; when our lives have no music in them and our hearts are lonely, and our souls have lost courage. Bless us on these days with a path flooded with your light and hope, turn our eyes to where the skies are blue and full of promise, grace our feet with the energy that will bring us home, and life the burdens from our shoulders so that we may embrace life with joy and love! Amen! (Adapted from a prayer by St. Augustine of Hippo)
Today’s Blessing Prayer: Friday greetings and blessings to all. I hope your Friday has started off well and it will be a good day that will take you into a relaxing and fun weekend.
This is my last full day in Southern California, early tomorrow morning I begin my journey home. It is to be another nice day here weather wise. I have been truly blessed this week and I am grateful for my time to – be with friends, to relax, to pray, to run and to just be! You know you need weeks like this every once in a while.
My prayer of blessing today is that all of us will find within ourselves the great Treasure St. Paul speaks about, God’s presence. That all of us will be renewed in our journey, our mission in life and that in being honest with ourselves we will overcome fear, hurt, anger, loneliness, jealousy and fatigue to be the person of joy, hope and love that God has created us to be! Enjoy your Friday and know you will all be in my prayers today and always. May your Friday be safe and may you be blessed with a good day and the beginning of a great weekend! Peace in Christ’s Passion…Fr. Paul

Today’s Blessing Prayer: Thursday greetings and blessings to all! It was a late night for me last night, so I am moving slow this morning. I attended the high school graduation of a very wonderful young woman last night who has made the most of her life so far, especially high school! Now a new adventure starts at Dartmouth College. Congrats Michelle and to the Quinn family and thanks for the invitation!
Even though I am moving slow this morning I am sure it is going to be another great day here in Southern California once I get moving. I hope your Thursday is starting off well?
My prayer of blessing today is that our Thursday has/will started off well and continue to be a good day. May God bless our work, our relationships, our travels, our encounters with others and most importantly us today! Peace in Christ’s Passion…Fr. Paul
Today’s Prayer: Loving God, you know the ways that we treat people that we do not like. You know that we judge them, we avoid them, we gossip about them, we hassle them. However, wanting to be your people of faith, your people of love, we do not want to be this way, to treat people this way anymore. So, we ask you for the grace and strength to learn how to be forgiving people today and always. We want to learn how to forgive and also how to ask for forgiveness when we struggle and fail. Help us God to be a forgiving people just as you are forgiving! We pray this today and always the Jesus Christ, your Son and our friend. Amen!
Fr. Paul R. Fagan, C.P.
A prayer or two to help you through your day!
