We return from our Holy Land Pilgrimage today.  We're making our way back
from Tel Aviv, JFK in New York and MSP in Minneapolis.  Margie, our Pastoral
Minister will be sending Morning Prayer in my absence. No prayer intentions
will be accepted at this time, since Morning Prayer has already been
prepared. Be assured that we'll remember your intentions in our prayers,
during our Daily Masses and in the many important Churches we'll visit.
Please "Subscribe" and "Unsubscribe" in the way described at the bottom of
this e-mail, since I won't have regular Internet access in the Holy Land.

Saint Albert the Great (1206-1280)
Albert was a 13th Century German Dominica who influenced the stance of the
Church toward Aristotelian philosophy brought to Europe by the spread of
Islam. He excelled as a teacher.  Ordained bishop of Ratisbon, he strove to
establish peace among peoples and between cities.  He wrote brilliantly on
many subjects to the advantage of sacred and secular sciences alike.  He
died in Cologne in 1280.

"For there is nought God loves, be it not one who dwells with Wisdom.  For
she is fairer than the sun and surpasses every constellation of the stars.
Compared to light, she takes precedence; for that, indeed, night supplants,
but wickedness prevails not over Wisdom. Indeed, she reaches from end to end
mightily and governs all things well."  ~ Wisdom 7:22b-8:1

Then he said to his disciples, "The days will come when you will long to see
one of the days of the Son of Many, but you will not see it."  ~ Luke

Some folks are very smart ... but not very wise. Wisdom is a spirit
intelligent, holy, unique and much more. Those who are wise are
instinctively kind to others and produces wonderful friends. Those who are
truly wise are excited about the coming of the fullness of the kingdom of
God, and comfortable not to know when or how it will arrive.

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

I pray that I may be a person of true wisdom.  I pray that I may build peace
and love as I anticipate the coming of the fullness of God's kingdom,
knowing that I won't be sure how or when it will come.

.=: 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!

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.
