Today’s Blessing Prayer: Wednesday greetings and blessings to all and happy Feast of St. Francis of Assisi! I would like to send a shout out to Pope Francis on his feast day. I would also like to say happy feast day to all in the Franciscan family of religious communities and to anyone else who finds comfort and spirit in St. Francis of Assisi.
I also hold in my prayers this morning once again all those who died or were wounded in the Las Vegas shooting, their families and all who mourn the loss of a loved one or friend. My prayers are not only for their comfort and consolation but that action will be taken so that tragedies like this will not happen again.
My prayer of blessing this morning is that the gentle, loving and peaceful spirit of St. Francis will be with you today and always. That the richness and beauty of God’s creation which St. Francis so loved, will touch you as you walk through this day. That the grace of God’s loving presence that St. Francis so lived will be present to you as you live through this day. And that the gentleness of God’s peace that St. Francis gave to the world, will guide you through this day and always.
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone! Peace in Christ’s Passion…Fr. Paul
