Today’s Blessing Prayer: Monday greetings and blessings to everyone! I hope this finds you well and energized for a new day and a new work week.
Though in less than a week we find ourselves offering prayers to family, friends and a community in Texas because of a mass shooting. In a way it almost becoming numbing. Week in and week out we seem to be offering prayers because of human made tragedy. I was struck by the fact listening to the news yesterday that no one called this shooter a “terrorist!” I wonder if the people in the church were “terrified” during the shooting. Are not all who inflict terror on others “terrorists?” Well I guess that is not for me to understand but I offer my personal prayers to all who came under fire yesterday. I pray one day we will wake up to the violence of guns!
My prayer of blessing this morning is a simple one – I ask God’s blessings for all of you today. May God bless you and protect you today and always. May God’s face smile upon you. May God’s grace enter into all you do. May you live today rich in a harvest of faith, hope and love which God has planted within you and may you always know that nothing can separate you from the love of God! Blessings to all and have a great Monday everyone. Peace in Christ’s Passion…Fr. Paul
