My Priest Support Group meets in Northern Wisconsin this afternoon.
Actually, some members will be together on the Lake most of the week.  I'll
return on Tuesday because of doctor appointments and some more medicine.
Keep us in your prayers.  Margie will send Morning Prayer for Tuesday in my
absence.  A note:  If you hit "respond" to send a message to Margie, it will
come right to me.  Margie's e-mail address is:  marge@xxxxxxxxxx

The blood of martyrs is the seed of saints. Nine years after the Jesuits
Isaac Jogues and John de Brébeuf were tortured to death by Huron and
Iroquois Indians, a baby girl was born near the place of their martyrdom,
Auriesville, New York. She was to be the first person born in North America
to be beatified.  For more, follow the link below:

Your hands are full of blood! Wash yourselves clean! Put away your misdeeds
from before my eyes; cease doing evil; learn to do good. Make justice your
aim: redress the wronged, hear the orphan?s plea, defend the widow.  ~Isaiah

whoever gives only a cup of cold water to one of these little ones to drink
because he is a disciple? amen, I say to you, he will surely not lose his
reward.?  ~Matthew 10:34-11:1

Our Scriptures ask us to turn from our misdeeds and wash ourselves clean.
When we cease doing evil and leave to do good, then we can make justice our
aim.  We can defend the widow and orphan.  As Jesus says, "... whoever gives
only a cup of cold water to one of these little ones to drink because he is
a disciple - amen, I say to you, he will surely not lose his reward."

I pray that I may follow the Lord's path for me.  If I should stray, I pray
that I may turn from my misdeeds, redress the wronged and look out for the
needs of the little ones.  Justice is the result, and only justice leads to

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!

Newly written each day by Father Pat Umberger.  Morning Prayer may not be 
published by others, but is a good resource for preachers and those who attend 
Daily Mass, and those who would like to keep up with the Lectionary Readings 
and are not always able to attend Daily Mass.
