I'll be in Mexico City and Guadalupe until late on the night of Friday, 19
January.  Margie, our Pastoral Minister will send Morning Prayer in my
absence.  Since Morning Prayer has already been prepared, intentions will
not be included during this time.  If you need to "unsubscribe" during this
time, just do so in the manner described at the bottom of each e-mail you
receive. Keep us in your prayers.  We'll remember your intentions in our
daily prayers, at our daily Mass, at Guadalupe and the many Churches we'll
visit in Mexico City, Guadalupe and the area.

"For this slight momentary affliction is preparing us for an eternal weight
of glory beyond all measure, because we look not at what can be seen but at
what cannot be seen; for what can be seen is temporary, but what cannot be
seen is eternal."  ~2 Corinthians 4:17-18

I know that my life will not be immune from difficulties, but that I can
have peace even in difficulties.  I know that serenity is the result of
faithful, trusting acceptance of God's will, even in the midst of
difficulties.  Saint Paul said: "This slight momentary affliction is
preparing us for an eternal weight of glory."

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

I pray that I may not dread difficulties.  I pray that as they  test my
strength, I may use them to build my character.

Intentions will not be included during our time in Mexico City.  We've taken
hundreds of intentions with us.  Please remember them in your prayers.  Be
assured too, that we'll remember you and your intentions in our prayers, at
our daily Mass, and in the many Churches we'll visit in Mexico City and the
area.

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!
