Today’s Blessing Prayer: Tuesday greetings and blessings to all. We find ourselves making our way through the last days of August and getting ready to welcome September – my how time flies when you are having fun. In less than a week we will celebrate Labor Day, a day some call the end of summer. I know many are already into the school mode but for most in the New York area they get a reprieve until next week. Well regardless of place, age or state of life summer is ending in the northern hemisphere and perhaps if we can we should take some time to enjoy it.
I hope your Monday is starting off well and that you will enjoy a good day weather wise and all other ways. We remember in our prayers the people of Texas and other parts of the Gulf states who are trying to make sense out of their lives and situations right now. We pray for those who have passed, those grieving and those trying to put their lives back together again. Lord, hold all the people who are struggling today in your strong hands!
My prayer of blessing this Tuesday morning is that whatever your situation whether it be the beginning of a new school year, in the midst of a work week, the last week of vacation or just another day – nothing special – may God’s blessing be upon you wherever you find yourself. May God bless you with the grace you need to live this day and in living this day may you bring God’s presence to all you meet! Peace in Christ’s Passion…Fr. Paul
