State Convention
I'll be at Knights of Columbus State Convention this weekend.  Margie, our
pastoral minister, will send out Morning Prayer in my absence. Keep me in
your prayers and know you're remembered in mine as well.   May God continue
to draw near to you and those you love and keep you safe!

St. Peter Chanel (1803-1841)
Anyone who has worked in loneliness, with great adaptation required and with
little apparent success, will find a kindred spirit in Peter Chanel. As a
young priest he revived a parish in a "bad" district by the simple method of
showing great devotion to the sick. Wanting to be a missionary, he joined
the Society of Mary (Marists) at 28. Obediently, he taught in the seminary
for five years. Then, as superior of seven Marists, he traveled to Western
Oceania where he was entrusted with a vicariate. The bishop accompanying the
missionaries left Peter and a brother on Futuna Island in the New Hebrides,
promising to return in six months. The interval lasted five years. For more,

After she and her household had been baptized, she offered us an invitation,
"If you consider me a believer in the Lord,
come and stay at my home," and she prevailed on us. ~Acts 16:11-15
Jesus said to his disciples: "When the Advocate comes whom I will send you
from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, he will
testify to me. And you also testify, because you have been with me from the
beginning.  ~John 15:26-16:4a

When Jesus promises the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, he knows full well that
many don't know him, and they don't know the Father either. He knows their
lives are in danger.  Still, they continue to preach the good news, knowing
it is the Lord's will and that He will not abandon them.

I pray that I may know Jesus and the Father.  I pray that I may receive the
Holy Spirit and fearlessly live my faith and tell others about it.  I pray
that I may not worry about the difficult consequences of living as a person
of faith.

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!
