“Lord, we pray for those who have been debated
by recent tragedies. We remember those who have
lost their loves so suddenly. We hold in our hearts
the families forever changed by grief and loss. Bring
them consolidation and comfort. Surround them with
our prayers for strength. Bless those who have sur-
vivid and heal their memories of trauma and divas-
tation. May they have the courage to face the days
ahead. Help us to respond with generosity in prayer,
in assistance, and in comfort to the best of our ability.
Keep our hearts focused on the needs of all the
community. We ask this in the Jesus’ name. Amen.”
Please pray a novena for the victims of the massacre.

Instead of an apology, when the words “I’m sorry” are too difficult to find,
sometimes it may not be necessary.
The response—I love you is all that is needed.

Prayer of Abandonment.
I abandon myself into your hands;
do with me what you will.
Whatever you may do, I thank you:
I am ready for all, I accept all.
Let only your will be done in me,
and in all your creatures –
I wish no more than this, O Lord.
Into your hands I commend my soul:
I offer it to you with all the love of my heart,
for I love you, Lord, and so need to give myself,
to surrender myself into your hands without reserve,
and with boundless confidence,
for you are my Father.
Charles de Foucauld
“Find A Way”
We need to take time every day to quiet our many concerns, fears and responsibilities so that we can hear the Spirit’s whisper, oh so gentle in our hearts. “God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but rather of power and love and self control.” (2 Timothy 1:7)
It is easy to be occupied mentally, to busy physically, to have excellent reasons why “now” is not a convenient time. Still, God is inviting you! He’s worth rearranging your schedule for Him, just as you would cancel all your appointments if you were invited to an important dinner or if you had the chance to meet someone, who you had always hoped you would, and now you get the opportunity.
Pray to God to stir your heart to make the changes and find that quiet time you will never stop or give up, once you have heard that whisper in “your quiet” time.
Find a way!
“Heaven…………but first, there must be
A decision HERE AND NOW
In this life.”
