Thought for the day: How did any of us make the journey towards faith in Christ? No doubt a great part of it is simply what we received – usually from family. At some point, did I make a conscious choice? Perhaps at other times, I felt like walking away from the faith project? What kept me going? Did a more personal ownership of faith result? Perhaps I can identify with the intuition of John O’Donahue, “Faith is helpless attraction to the divine.” In spite of everything, in spite of myself, somehow it is part of who I am. Prayer: Mysterious God, we are those who have seen and at the same time, not seen. Help to look beyond the simple gifts of each day to see you the giver behind – and in – every gift. Help us embrace the grace that we may know true blessedness in believing. Fr K O’Mahony OSA.

Pope Francis – Tweet: The first way to pray for someone is to speak to God about him or her. If we do this frequently, each day, our hearts are not closed, but open to our brothers and sisters. To pray for others is the first way to love them and it moves us toward concretely drawing near.

Fratelli Tutti: A prayer to the Creator
Lord, Father of our human family,
you created all human beings
equal in dignity:
pour forth into our hearts a fraternal spirit
and inspire in us
a dream of renewed encounter,
dialogue, justice and peace.

Move us to create healthier societies
and a more dignified world,
a world without hunger, poverty,
violence and war.

May our hearts be open
to all the peoples and nations of the earth.
May we recognize the goodness and beauty
that you have sown in each of us,
and thus forge bonds of unity,
common projects, and shared dreams. Amen.
from Pope Francis’ encyclical, Fratelli Tutti.
