TODAY’S PRAYER – July 21, 2016

Abba, Father in heaven, Amazing and Wonderful God, we praise You and thank You for revealing the mystery of Your reign to us. We came to know things our ancestors never imagined. How fortunate truly we are to live in this century, with You who continuously reveal Your love for us. Not only that we have come to witness the many medical, technological discoveries, but we also come to know You are as our loving and merciful God and You make us Your people. You revealed to us the mysteries of Your kingdom, just like how You revealed them to the apostles. Help us to remain open to Your truth and protect us from the spirits of arrogance, stubbornness, and hardheaded-ness which hit many of the Pharisees and Israelites as described in the gospel.

We thank You, Father, for giving us the gift of faith, for we have come to believe that You are our Father, and Jesus, You Son, is our Savior. We come to believe that through Jesus we can find our salvation, our peace, and our happiness. We thank You and ask You to help us strive to deepen our faith by learning more about Your Way. Empower us to surrender our will to You Holy Will. If we have great faith and love for You, we will want to share them with other people. Please help us to let many see what we have seen and hear what we have heard. Continue to help us use our gifts to help in directing the eyes of others to Your truth and Your reign. We ask through Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior. Amen.

Pray the Sacred Scripture and be transformed in spirit and truth. Click on the link - http://usccb.org/bible/readings/072116.cfm

A letter from Archbishop Lori


“Filipino Families are Called to be Brave Missionary Disciples“

We become bold missionary disciples when:

- we root all our actions and decisions to the reality of God's love for us.

- we cross over the other side of life where God wishes us to be.

- we allow ourselves to be led by the Holy Spirit.
