Thought for the day: For the word of God to become a living word, we need to listen beyond the words to the one speaking to us through Scripture. It is our faith that God speaks to us as we listen to “the very voice of the pilgrim people God.” This does not happen of its own accord; it calls for a listening ear and an open heart. Prayer: Merciful God, anoint me with you Holy Spirit. As I read your Word, let me hear your voice speaking to me from within. Give me the wisdom to understand your message to me. Let your Word be the joy of my heart and the light to my feet. Give me strength to build my life on your Word. Let it be done to me according to your Word. May I rejoice in the blessedness of hearing your Word and keeping it. Speak Lord; your servant is listening. Fr K O’Mahony OSA.

Pope Francis – Tweet: Even death trembles when a Christian prays, because it knows that everyone who prays has an ally who is stronger than it: The Risen Lord.

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.
