Today’s Blessing Prayer: Monday and Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross greetings and blessings to all! I hope you are continuing to navigate through these unusual and at times difficult days with faith and a hopefulness for the future.
Once again as we journey through this uncertain time, I offer you Pope Francis’ Prayer…
O Mary, you shine continuously on our journey as a sign of salvation and hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, and the Health of the Sick.
At the foot of the Cross you participated in Jesus’ pain,
with steadfast faith.
You, Salvation of All People, know what we need.
We are certain that you will provide, so that,
as you did at Cana of Galilee,
joy and feasting might return after this moment of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love,
to conform ourselves to the Father’s will
and to do what Jesus tells us:
He who took our sufferings upon Himself, and bore our sorrows to bring us,
through the Cross, to the joy of the Resurrection. Amen.
We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God.
Do not despise our pleas – we who are put to the test – and deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
(Prayer Composed by Pope Francis)
As I begin this new day my prayer for all of us is that we will have a good journey through this day. May we live by faith today and trust in the gift that we are. May God recognize our faith and bless us with the unconditional love that we are reminded of each time we look upon his Cross. If we are struggling today may we find the grace of hope, peace, and love to see us through this day. Blessings today upon all we do, upon everyone we meet and most importantly upon each of us! Peace in Christ’s Passion…Fr. Paul
