Visit my Web Site for our Mother's Day page.  It includes some great links,
stories and pass-alongs.  Many of us who have lost moms find this a hard
time of the year.  Visit our Grief Support page as well. You'll find the
blessing we use in Church here at Saint Pat's as well. I hope you enjoy it. 

This is also Mary's Month.  Learn more about what we believe about Mary as
Catholics.  It's a great refresher for Catholics and it can be a great
awakening for those who are a bit suspicious about what we think of Mary.

"Be still and know that I am God."  ~Psalm 46:10

Calmness is constructive of good.  Agitation is destructive of good. I need
not rush into action.  I can first "be still and know that God is God." Then
I can act only as God directs me through my conscience. Only trust, perfect
trust in God can keep me calm when all around me are agitated. Calmness is
trust in action.  I can seek all things which can help me to cultivate
calmness.  To attain material things, the world learns to attain speed.  To
attain spiritual things, I can learn to attain a state of calm.

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

I pray that I may learn how to have inner peace.  I pray that I may be calm,
so that God can work through me.

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!
