Encourage them to Subscribe to Morning Prayer!

If you enjoy the NEW Morning Prayer, why not forward a copy to family
members and friends. Many seem to enjoy the new format.  Some say that they
like to attend Daily Mass, but cannot always do so.  Morning Prayer keeps
them in touch with the daily Scriptures and Saint of the day. Not all
priests preach on all weekdays. Morning Prayer provides a short reflection
and a concrete way to apply Scriptures to our lives. Clergy too, appreciate
the simple ideas found in both Morning Prayer and This Weekend.  Family
members and friends can learn more by following the banner link from:

Saturday of the Twenty-Fourth Week in Ordinary Time, Year C.

"I charge you before God ... and before Christ Jesus ... to keep the
commandment without stain or reproach until the appearance of our Lord Jesus
Christ ..."  Paul to Timothy 6:13-16

"A sower went out to sow his seed ... and some of it fell on good soil, and
when it grew, it produced fruit a hundredfold."  Luke 8:4-15

St. Lawrence Ruiz and Companions
Lorenzo (1600-1637) was born in the Philippines to Chinese parents.  He was
married and had children. He was accused of murder and escaped with
Dominican Priests.  He was eventually apprehended in Japan.  He and his
companions were subjected to unspeakable torture and died for their faith.

The seed sown is the Word of God. It can fall on deaf ears, grow for awhile
and then wither, or fall on good soil. We are called to be that good soil
and keep the "... commandment without stain or reproach until the appearance
of our Lord Jesus Christ." As recipients of the Word we can come to
increased understanding of our call.  We can be faithful and follow that
call wherever it leads.

I pray that I may be receive God's Word with joy and allow it to grow within
me.  I pray that I may be courageous in living my faith even when this would
lead me to think and act differently from others.  I pray that I may hold on
to my faith always.

bones resulting from diabetes complications.

David ask for prayers for a friend's reconciliation with his son. Nancy from

week with her lung doctor, radiation oncologist and gynecologist will yield
good news and no new problems. Beverly asks prayers for a special intention.

Mary asks prayers for her boyfriend who hurt his knee 3 weeks ago that he
can get some answers from the doctors and be able to start the healing
process. Jo Ann requests prayers for special intentions for her son and his
family. Lauren requests prayers for her 32-year old nephew who recently
suffered a stroke. Lynn asks prayers for her sister-in-law and niece who

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.
