Today’s Blessing Prayer: Holy Thursday greetings and blessings to everyone! My morning has started rather early I guess my mind started to work before the rest of me was ready. My eye opened this morning before 3 am and my mind has been going ever since. I hope your Holy Thursday has started well and this it will truly be a blessed day. The sun is not up yet, and I am not sure what is in store for us weather wise today. I believe it is to be a cloudy day with temperatures a little on the cool side. Whatever the day brings may it help us to feel the richness of Holy Thursday.
I will have a somewhat busy day as I will celebrate mass this afternoon at 4 pm at the Wartburg Home in Mount Vernon and then head to Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish here in Pelham Manor as they have a special evening supper before the Eucharist of the Lord’s Supper. I am looking forward to joining the parish community to celebrate this most holy of evenings and sharing the Good News with them. Please keep all who gather this holy night to remember in your prayers.
I hope you will be able to get to at least some of the services over the next three days if not for the whole service perhaps just for a short visit so that you might stay in touch with the holiness, blessing and grace of these days. Please make a visit or spend some time in prayer. Take a little break for the busyness of life to be touched by God’s grace!
My prayer of blessing for all of you today is that the infinite tenderness of God might touch your life and that you will be blessed over these most holy days with the mercy and joy of the Cross, which springs from the knowledge that we possess an imperishable treasure in perishable earthen vessels. Holy Thursday blessings to all! Peace in Christ’s Passion…Fr. Pau
