"I am with you , says the Lord of hosts. This is the pact that I made with
you when you cam out of Egypt, And my spirit continues in your midst; do not
fear!"  ~Haggai 2:1-9

Jesus said to them "But who do you say that I am.? Peter said in reply, "The
Christ of God." He rebuked them and directed them not to tell this to
anyone.  ~Luke 9:18-22

Saint Wenceslaus
was born near Prague to the Duke of Bohemia around 907. He was raised a
Christian by his grandmother Ludmilla. His work in uniting Bohemia, making
peace with Germany and supporting the Church caught attention and he was
opposed even by his brother Boleslav who plotted against him. On his way to
Mass he was attacked by Boleslav and killed by Boleslav's supporters.
Wenceslaus was hailed as a martyr for the faith.

Wenceslaus worked for unity in Christ's name. The disciples of Jesus were
called to do the same. Jesus told them that "The Son of Man must suffer
greatly ..." Following Christ has a price.

I pray that I may work for unity and peace in Christ's name. I pray that I
may not shrink from my call out of fear of what might happen to me.

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!
