Today’s Blessing Prayer: Saturday greetings and blessings to everyone! I hope you will be blessed with the spirit of St. Martha today so that you can 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 blessing prayer today is that God will bless our day with many good experiences through the presence of God and like St. Martha we will have the faith to recognize God’s presence in our encounters today. I pray and hope that we will all have a great Wednesday no matter where we are or what this day brings to our life! I pray for God’s blessings upon all of us as we navigate through your day. May God bless us in the spirit of St. Martha in all our endeavors, in all of our challenges and in all of our struggles. Let us trust in the presence of God that we carry within us and let us not be afraid to share our gift. Peace in Christ’s Passion…Fr. Paul
