Today’s Blessing Prayer: Tuesday greeting and blessing to all. I hope your day has started off well and that you are seeing clearly the day ahead. If not, perhaps you should ask for your money back on the solar eclipse glasses you bought. I hope you found it fun being part of history yesterday?
I would like to send a shout out to my two classmates Fr. Melvin and Fr. Chris on this our 35 Anniversary of taking our vows with the Passionists. We started out as seven and now there is only three. I am honored to share this important life moment with Fr. Melvin and Fr. Chris. I wish them the best today and I hope they take a little time to celebrate and know that I will. Thanks also to the Passionists for accepting us and giving great purpose and meaning to our lives. So it is Happy 35th today!
My prayer of blessing for us today is a simple litany asking God to help us along the way – Loving God, we pray for your blessing today in the midst of our busy life. If we find ourselves struggling with the heat of summer reminds us of the cold days of winter. If we are under the weather touch us with your healing presence. If we are busy guide us to a moment of peace. If we are frustrated grace us with an acknowledgement of the gift that you are. If we find ourselves angry today help us to let it go. If we find ourselves alone embrace us so that we know that are not. O God, bless us with what we need to live our life this day!
May we live with a sense of gratitude today so that we will be blessed with good day and graced with God’s love in all our endeavors. Peace in Christ’s Passion…Fr. Paul
