Today’s Blessing Prayer: Thursday greetings and blessings to all. I hope your day has started off well. Last night I was reminded that it was just two year ago, September 5th that my good friend and Passionist brother Fr. Michael Greene, C.P. lost his brother Dennis to cancer. Dennis was Fr. Michael’s older brother, who during the 1960’s was a member of the singing group Sha Na Na. Dennis was a wonderful man who had a great command of the English language. He was a law professor at the University of Dayton when he died. His battle with esophageal cancer was a short one as he was only diagnosed a few weeks before his death. I would like to remember Dennis and Fr. Michael today. Mr. Dennis Greene touched many lives with his music, his intelligence, his kindness, his humor and his faith. He is truly missed. May he now rest in the loving hands of God! – Peace to you Fr. Michael.
My prayer of blessing today is that God’s blessings will be upon you today and always. May God’s blessing be with you wherever you are and upon whatever you are doing. May God bless you with the grace, peace, joy and love you need to live this day and in living this day may you bring God’s presence to all you meet! Let us continue to remember those recovering from Hurricane Harvey and those dealing with or who are awaiting the arrival of Hurricane Irma. May all be safe, blessing and helped! Peace in Christ’s Passion…Fr. Paul
