Today’s Blessing Prayer: Monday greetings and blessings to everyone! I hope this find you well and enjoying your morning and looking forward to the rest of your day!
Today is the Feast of St. Ignatius of Loyola the founder of the Jesuits so I send a shout out to Pope Francis and all Jesuits today – Happy Feast Day – many blessings and much peace to all!
I would especially like to remember Fr. Ron Windmueller, S.J. and Fr. Chet Gator, S.J. both of whom have passed on but through their friendship during my St. Louis years helped to make my vocation possible because they shared the treasure of God’s Kingdom with me. And Fr. Louis Padovano, S.J. who also has passed but who often showed me the light of God’s grace when I founded myself in darkness. Rest in peace with God my good Jesuit friends!
Finally I sent a shout out, on this last day of July, to all of you who follow me and who are part of my life. May God, who formed you in your mother’s womb, who breathed life into you, who gifted the world with your present, hold you once again in his loving hands as you journey through this day. May God bless you with the gift of a joy filled day. May God bless you with the gift of his presence that you will share with everyone you meet and may God keep you safe and return you home to those you love for a peaceful night! Peace in Christ’s Passion…Fr. Paul
PS I am posting rather early this morning because I am on the road headed back to Pelham. It will be a long ride so I ask for your prayers so it will be a safe one!
