Encourage them to Subscribe to Morning Prayer!

If you enjoy 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:  www.frpat.com

Feast of Saints Michael, Gabriel and Raphael, Archangels
"Their splendor shows us your greatness, which surpasses in goodness the
whole of creation. " ~Mass Preface

Michael appears at the head of the heavenly hosts, the conqueror of Satan in
the great battle of end time (First Reading from Revelation). Gabriel is the
messenger who announces the birth of John the Baptist and that of Jesus.
Raphael appears in the Old Testament Book of Tobit as a guide to Tobit's son
Tobiah.  Michael protects; Gabriel announces; Raphael guides.

So often we seek God's protection and guidance. We stand in need of what God
has to offer. We can see in God's Holy Angels God's protection,
communication and guidance in ways that we'll never understand, but will be
of great value.

I pray that I can trust that God cares for me.  I pray that I can see His
presence in those around me, and allow God to work through me too, to speak
God's wisdom, and help to provide His guidance and protection.
