St. Peter Chrysologus (406-450?) 
A man who vigorously pursues a goal may produce results far beyond his
expectations and his intentions. Thus it was with Peter of the Golden Words,
as he was called, who as a young man became bishop of Ravenna, the capital
of the empire in the West.  For more, follow the link below:

And I will make you toward this people a solid wall of brass. Though they
fight against you, they shall not prevail, For I am with you, to deliver and
rescue you, says the LORD. I will free you from the hand of the wicked, and
rescue you from the grasp of the violent. ~Jeremiah 15:10, 16-21

Jesus said to his disciples: "The Kingdom of heaven is like a treasure
buried in a field, which a person finds and hides again, and out of joy goes
and sells all that he has and buys that field.  ~Matthew 13:44-46

Sometimes we spin our wheels working for things that are very temporary.
Things go much better for us when we work for the things that last forever.
A treasure in a field or a pearl of great price might be nice for a little
while, but can easily distract us from what is really important. May we seek
all that we need to live good Christian lives according to our calling.

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

I pray that I may not be distracted by the values of the world and spin my
wheels working for things that don't last.  I pray that I may fulfill God's
call in my life by seeking the wisdom and courage I need to follow that
call.  I pray that when others follow my example, that they may draw closer
to God Himself.

.=: 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
