St. Frances of Rome (1384-1440)
Frances?s life combines aspects of secular and religious life. A devoted
and loving wife, she longed for a lifestyle of prayer and service, so she
organized a group of women to minister to the needs of Rome?s poor. For

I will put my spirit in you that you may live,and I will settle you upon
your land;thus you shall know that I am the LORD.I have promised, and I
will do it, says the LORD.  ~ Ezekiel 37:12-14

But if Christ is in you,although the body is dead because of sin, the
spirit is alive because of righteousness.  ~ Romans 8:8-11

He cried out in a loud voice, ?Lazarus, come out!? The dead man came out,
tied hand and foot with burial bands, and his face was wrapped in a cloth.
So Jesus said to them, ?Untie him and let  him go.?  ~John 11:1-45

Jesus is our hope.  If Christ is in us, the spirit is alive! In our Gospel
we see Jesus compassion as he stands at the tomb of Lazarus and weeps. 
Jesus, who knew he would see Lazarus again, still wept, out of love for
Lazarus and his family.  We can trust that our God is a God of compassion
who has experienced everything we do.  He is with us too in our grief!

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

I pray that I might live with the spirit within me.  I pray that I may
know that eternal life is mine.  I pray too, that I may understand the
Jesus with fully with me as I face the deaths of loved ones and the
reality of my own death.

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

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  Morning Prayer may not be 
published by others, but is a good resource for preachers and those who attend 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.
