"By the tender mercy of our God, the dawn from on high will break upon us,
to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to
guide our feet into the way of peace."  ~Luke 1:78-79

.=:  M E D I T A T I O N   F O R   T H E   D A Y  :=.

For straying from the right way there is no cure except to keep so close to
the thought of God that nothing, no other interest, can seriously come
between us and God.  Sure of that, we can stay on God's side. Knowing the
way, nothing can prevent our staying in the way and nothing can cause us to
seriously stray from it.  God has promised peace if we stay close to God,
but not leisure.  We still have to carry on in the world.  God has promised
heart-rest and comfort, but not leisure in the ordinary sense.  Peace and
comfort bring real inward happiness. 

.=: P R A Y E R   F O R   T H E   D A Y  :=.

I pray that I may keep my feet on the way.  I pray that I may stay on God's
side.

Amy asks prayers for a special intention. Karen sends praise and
thankfulness for answered prayers for her mother-in-law who had successful
lung surgery and was found to not have cancer. Judy requests prayers for her
husband, the medical provided for an upcoming cancer screen exam for
favorable results.

Judy asks prayers for the safety of her daughter and relatives who are
traveling in Portugal for the next 10 days. Sheryl asks for prayers for a
friend and his family, that God's will be done and he and his family not
suffer too much. Nancy from PA requests prayers for two young brothers, 12
and 13, and their grieving family, who drowned when the one brother tried to
save the other and they both perished that God will be a source of strength
and comfort to their family.

A Holy Family member asks prayers for loved ones who recently lost a
son/brother/husband in a tragic accident. Alvina asks prayers that her
psoriasis be cured.  We ask prayers for Nick, that his surgery may be
successful and his recovery rapid and complete.

Mary asks prayers for someone having cancer prostate surgery today, and for
another person, for a healthy pregnancy. Orla asks prayers for prayers for
members of the family close to death and the families they are leaving
behind. A sick mother that specialists will find the cause of her pain. Dora
asks prayers for daughter to reunite with son.

We pray for unity in our country and that we may build a Culture of Life. We
pray for the safety of our troops, their safe return and their families at
home.  We pray for a deep and profound respect for life, and for the courage
and willingness to stand up for life. We pray for one another, for those who
have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most. Have a
good day!

May God Bless you and those you love, and keep you safe!

Father Pat
