The Lord said to him, "Oh you Pharisees! Although you cleanse the outside of
the cup and the dish, inside you are filled with plunder and evil. You
fools! Did not the maker of the outside also make the inside? But as to what
is within, give alms, and behold, everything will be clean for you."  ~Luke

Outside beauty does not always translate to beauty on the inside. Jesus knew
that very well. The Pharisees worked hard to look good externally, but
inside were filled with evil and plunder. They needed to repent, forget
themselves, and then reach out to make things better for others.  When that
was practiced and became natural, it would provide beauty on the inside as

I pray that I may concentrate more on internal beauty than external
appearance.  I pray that I may forget myself and look after the needs of
those around me.  I pray that this will bring me closer to the Lord and
provide a good example for those around me as well.

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
