Today’s Blessing Prayer: Thursday greetings and blessings to all! I hope this find you well and continuing to navigate through these unusual and at time difficult days with faith and a hopefulness in 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 today is – May God, the Eternal Potter, who formed us in our mother’s womb, who breathed life into us, who gifted the world with our present, hold us once again in his loving potter’s hands as we journey through this day. May God bless us with the gift of a joy filled day. May God bless us with the gift of his presence that we will share with everyone we encounter and may God keep us safe, healthy, and graced in his love this day and always! Blessings on your Thursday journey everyone. Peace in Christ’s Passion…Fr. Paul
Fr. Paul R. Fagan, C.P.
