Today’s Blessing Prayer: Sunday greetings and blessings to all. It is an early Sunday morning for me. In a about an hour I will be heading out to St. Francis of Assisi Church in Mount Kisco, NY about 25 miles from here to preach the 7:30 am mass and three other masses. It will be a long day but one that I am sure will be filled with energy and spirit.
I hope today will be a day of rest for you, though I know many of you have busy lives and today might include some busyness. If so I hope you find at least a little time of rest during the day!
I ask your prayers for the faith community here at St. Francis of Assisi Parish, and for their preacher that we might be gifted with a journey to the mountain top these next few days as we celebrate a time of mission.
My prayer of blessing is that today will offer all of us the opportunity to be blessed with a restful and peaceful day that will nourishes and refreshes us for the journey of a new week and whatever it brings to our life! I hope and pray that you find a little time for God today and when you do may you be blessed with the richness of God’s presence, grace, mercy and everlasting love. Remember as we hear in the Responsorial Psalm today, let us “walk before the Lord, in the land of the living.” From my perspective it is a wonderful thought with which to begin a new day! Peace in Christ's Passion...Fr. Paul

A prayer or two to help you through your day!
