Today’s Blessing Prayer: Wednesday 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)
My prayer of blessing for all of us is that today will be rich in the gifts of faith, hope, love, and peace in our life and that if we encounter anger, violence and negativity it will be short lived because we are blessed with loving, caring people in our life. I pray that we will be open to the many ways that God will touch our life today and that we will trust in the gift of God that we are and bring that gift to every person we encounter, to every place we go and to every experience we have. May God bless us and be with us today and always. Peace in Christ’s Passion…Fr. Paul
