St. Cyprian (d. 258) 
Cyprian is important in the development of Christian thought and practice in
the third century, especially in northern Africa. Highly educated, a famous
orator, he was converted to Christianity as an adult. He distributed his
goods to the poor, and amazed his fellow citizens by making a vow of
chastity before his Baptism. Within two years he had been ordained a priest
and was chosen, against his will, as Bishop of Carthage (near modern Tunis).

When you sin in this way against your brothers and wound their consciences,
weak as they are, you are sinning against Christ. Therefore, if food causes
my brother to sin, I will never eat meat again, so that I may not cause my
brother to sin. ~1 Corinthians 8:1b-7, 11-13

Stop judging and you will not be judged. Stop condemning and you will not be
condemned. Forgive and you will be forgiven. ~Luke 6:27-38

Do to others as you would have them do to you.  What good advice!  We need
to treat others as we would like to be treated.  We need to set a good
example for others to follow too, so they might draw near to Christ by
imitating our actions.  It is best if judgment and condemnation is banished
from our lives.  It is wonderful if we're willing to forgive and ask
forgiveness.  Then we will not be condemned or judged, but forgiven by the
God who continues to love us and who yearns to draw near to us.

I pray that I may not be a judgmental person.  I pray that I may be a
forgiving person who can ask forgiveness.  I pray that my example may be
worthy, and that people will be able to draw near to Christ by following my

.=: W E     P R A Y  :=.

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!
