Today’s Blessing Prayer: Monday greetings and blessings to on this last day of 2018. It looks to be a grey, cloudy and rainy day here in the New York area. I hope your last day of 2018 has a little bit nicer weather.
I begin this day thankful for the year that has passed but happy and excited to bring in a New Year. I pray all of you are where you need and want to be and that you will get a chance to celebrate with family and/or friends tonight. If you need to travel, please travel safe. If you are going to be out and about at, around or after midnight, please be safe!
I offer a simple blessing on this last day of 2018 - O Loving God, hear our prayers today as we pray in thanksgiving for the year that has just past and with hope for the year we are about to begin. Bless us with the grace of wisdom that we have gathered over this last year and help us during the coming year to soften the hearts of all so that we may always know your friendship. Grant peace and prosperity to your people bless each of us today and always with your love. Amen! May all of us encounter God’s mercy, peace, hope and many new dreams in 2019. See you next year! Peace in Christ’s Passion...Fr. Paul
