Today’s Blessing Prayer: Thursday greetings and blessings to all. It is still dark out as I write this so I am not sure what the new day will bring. Around 6 am I will be heading out to our place in Jamaica, NY for our January Taping Day for the Sunday Mass. It is going to be a long day and I would ask that you keep us in your prayers today!
I hope your week is going well. I pray that you feel supported by God and have encountered the presence of God throughout your journey of life this week. As always, I pray for God’s blessings upon all of us today that whether busy or not, we may find the gift of God’s touch in our lives; the touch of healing if we need it, but most importantly the touch of joy, hope, mercy and love to carry us through the day. Have a great day everyone. Peace in Christ's Passion...Fr. Paul
Today’s Prayer: Loving God, help us today so that we will not be people with hardened hearts but people with compassionate hearts. Help us to be people willing to reach out across the boundaries of life with mercy that all might have the opportunity to be part of your community of faith. Enliven us that we will always hear your word with an open mind and an open heart! Amen!
Today’s Blessing Prayer: Wednesday greetings and blessings to all. I hope you have settled into the journey of this week and that things are going well. In an hour or so I will be headed to the Passionist House in Jamaica, NY to set up for our Sunday Mass Taping Day tomorrow.
I hope your day has started off well and that whatever tasks, work, travels and interactions you face today will be positive ones for you and those you encountered. May the sun shine bright on your face today.
My simple prayer of blessing today is that God will bless all our endeavors, all our interactions, all of our challenges, all of our travels, all of our meetings, all of our ordinary tasks, all of our relationships, all whom we love and us. May we bring the gift of God to our world today! Have a great day everyone! Peace in Christ's Passion...Fr. Paul
Today’s Prayer: O God, we are a struggling people, we want to believe, we want to hear and respond to your call. Help us to be your servant who listens and grace us with faith so that in our moments of unbelief we might truly bring your healing presence to all who need it in this world. Amen!
Today’s Blessing Prayer: Tuesday greetings and blessings to all. I hope your Tuesday has started off well, if not I pray that it will get better as the day goes on. Today will be another partly cloudy and cold day in the New York area. I hope you day is a little better weather wise.
If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you might have noticed yesterday that I was home because new windows were being installed. Well, the project got completed in one day just as the company promised and I now have five new windows and it is amazing how different the sound and heat are in my section of the house now. It is the little things that truly make a difference!
My prayer of blessing for us today is a simple litany asking God to help us along the way – Loving God, we pray for your blessing today in the midst of our busy life. If we find ourselves under the weather touch us with your healing presence. If we are busy guide us to a moment of peace. If we are frustrated grace us with an acknowledgement of the gift that you are. If we find ourselves angry today help us to let it go. If we find ourselves alone embrace us so that we know that we are not. O God bless us with what we need to live our life this day! Have a great Tuesday everyone. Peace in Christ's Passion...Fr. Paul
Today’s Prayer: O God, your gift of courage is one of the greatest favors you have given us. It would be wrong for us to behave like cowards or to fear anything except not being true to you. So once again grant us the courage to live authentic lives that reflect your greatest gift to us, Love! Bestow on us this day your kindness and peace that we might bring them to all we meet! Amen! (Adapted in part from the words of St. Teresa of Avila)
Today’s Blessing Prayer: Monday greetings and blessings to all. Welcome to the first week of Ordinary Time. The Christmas Season is officially over at least liturgically. I hope you had a good weekend and that your team or teams won in various sports over the weekend.
It is going to be a cold, cloudy day here in the New York area. I pray that you are rested and ready for all this new week will bring into your life. If not, I hope today will not be too difficult for you so that you can get your feet on the ground for the rest of the week.
My prayer of blessing this morning is that God’s blessings will be upon all of us so that we will have a great day and week! May God grace us with his presence this day and may we be alert and aware of God’s presence as we live this day. May God’s blessing make this day one that is rich in the presence and friendship of God. Peace in Christ's Passion...Fr. Paul
Today’s Prayer: Loving God, grant us the grace to recognize you today as you pass by and the wisdom to say yes to your invitation to follow. May your invitation lead to friendship with you, newness of life and your gift of love. Help us with the strength to accept the challenge of conversion of heart and to believe in the Good News and proclaim it to all we meet by the living of life! Amen!
Today’s Blessing Prayer: Sunday greetings and blessings to all! I hope your Sunday has started off well. I hope you are finding some time to rest and just enjoy. Here in the New York area it is going to be a cold day. I hope the weather is a little warmer by you.
As I look ahead it will be a busy week for me. New windows will be put in starting tomorrow and this is a Sunday Mass taping week so Wednesday and Thursday will be busy days. I hope you are not finding life too busy in these January days of the New Year!
On this Sunday honoring the Baptism of the Lord, I pray that God will renew within us the graces and blessings we received at our own baptism. That the Holy Spirit will enliven our faith, energize our hope and remind us of God’s everlasting love. I pray that God will once again bless us with the gift of being his beloved daughters and sons! May God’s mercy, grace and blessing upon all today. Peace in Christ's Passion...Fr. Paul
Today’s Prayer: O God, our great and wonderful Parent, declare us your beloved daughters and sons once again. Transform us with the grace of your love into the children you have created and called us to be. Children who bring your presence, your love, your mercy and your peace to the world in the Spirit of Christ your most beloved Son. May everything, we do be pleasing to you because it is done through Christ our loving Lord. Amen!
Fr. Paul R. Fagan, C.P.
