Today’s Blessing Prayer: Monday greetings to all! I hope this finds you well today and rested from a weekend that was blessed by some down time with family and friends.
I would like to send a shout out to the School Sisters of Notre Dame in the African Province. Today is the 6th Anniversary of the beginning of their province and they will install the first native African sister as provincial. It is a special day for all School Sisters of Notre Dame but especially those in African. It is an alive and growing province and I would just like to say happy anniversary, many blessings upon the new provincial and all the sisters today and into the future. May the spirit of St. Augustine energize and enliven the ministry, the work and the lives of all who call themselves School Sisters of Notre Dame and who serve the people of Africa!
My prayer of blessing on this feast of St. Augustine of Hippo be that God will bless all of you on this Monday. For some it is the beginning of a new school year, for others it is the beginning of a new work week, for others it may be the first or last week of vacation and for still others it might be the last day of this life. May God’s blessing be upon you wherever you find yourselves. May God bless you with the spirit of St. Augustine as you journey through this day! May God bless you with the grace you need to live this day and in living this day may you bring God’s presence to all you meet! Peace in Christ’s Passion…Fr. Paul
