Visit my on-line Stations of the Cross.  I wrote the text for children and
adults alike.  They're available in English and Spanish as well. Visit the
Stations every day during Lent.  I think you'll like them a great deal.
Here's the link: www.frpat.com/stations.htm

Chair of Peter the Apostle  
This feast commemorates Christ's choosing Peter to sit in his place as the
servant-authority of the whole Church (see June 29).  For more, click the

Do not lord it over those assigned to you, but be examples to the flock. And
when the chief Shepherd is revealed, you will receive the unfading crown of
glory.  ~ 1 Peter 4:1-5

And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my
Church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. I
will give you the keys to the Kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth
shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in
heaven." ~ Matthew 16:13-19

As we celebrate the Feast of the Chair of Saint Peter we recall the
authority and mission Jesus gave Peter, to be the rock upon whom He would
build His Church.  Sometimes we can become uncomfortable with authority.
The authority of Peter though, was to keep us on the right path and to lead
us to God's Kingdom. We pray for Benedict XVI, the successor to Peter, that
he may be wise and courageous and keep us on the path we should follow.

I pray that I may be grateful for the guidance God's Church and our Holy
Father provide.  I pray that I may lead others closer to God by following
the example of the many holy people around me.

for prayers for her husband that the Lord will bless him in his finances and

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!
