Today’s Blessing Prayer: Friday greetings and blessings to all and welcome to September! It is hard to believe that the summer is almost over. I had such great plans for the summer but I forgot to implement them. Oh well there is always next summer!
I continue to pray for the people of Texas and Louisiana. It is going to be a long recovery and so I pray for relief, patience, sunny skies, receding waters and a chance for live to get back to normal soon. I also want to remember all who lost their life and for those who morn their loss. Finally, I pray that hurricane Irma brewing in the Atlantic stays far away from people and land!
My prayer of blessing for all you today is that our Loving God, the giver of all good gifts, will bless you today with hearts that love you, so that by deepening your sense of respect and reverence for yourself you may nurture within yourselves and others only what is good. May God bless you with a watchful care throughout this day so that wherever you go and whatever you do it will be in, and through and with God. May God bring you home safe to those you love that you might celebrate the gift of family, of friendship, of community, of your love so that your sleep will be restful and you will be energized to welcome tomorrow! May God offer you much grace and many blessings as you journey through this day! Peace in Christ’s Passion…Fr. Paul
