St. Mother Theodore Guérin (1798-1856)
Trust in God?s Providence enabled Mother Theodore to leave her homeland,
sail halfway around the world and to found a new religious congregation.
Born in Etables, France, Anne-Thérèse?s life was shattered by her father?s
murder when she was 15. For several years she cared for her mother and
younger sister. She entered the Sisters of Providence in 1823, taking the
name Sister St. Theodore. An illness during novitiate left her with lifelong
fragile health; that did not keep her from becoming an accomplished teacher.

As your hearts have been disposed to stray from God, turn now ten times the
more to seek him; For he who has brought disaster upon you will, in saving
you, bring you back enduring joy. ~Baruch 4:5-12, 27-29

?I give you praise, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for although you have
hidden these things from the wise and the learned you have revealed them to
the childlike. Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will. All things
have been handed over to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son is except
the Father, and who the Father is except the Son
and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him.? ~Luke 10:17-24

Children often intuitively know more than adults.  They know God loves them.
They know God wants them to follow in the footsteps of Jesus. They accept
the truths of faith without question and without exception.  We're called to
emulate their innocence and purity.

I pray that I may become like a little child.  I pray that I may always know
God's love for me and His call to walk in the footsteps of His Son Jesus.

Ray asks prayers for himself as he has been diagnosed with prostate cancer.
L from Ohio requests prayers for someone who has advanced cancer. Lynn asks
prayers for her husband and her brother, both of whom may have depression
due to health issues.

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
