Thought for the day: “Do not be afraid” is one of those expressions which goes straight to the heart. Who has not sometimes been afraid? The command not to fear combines two things: firstly, it is a recognition that yes, sometimes we are afraid; secondly, it proclaims that in the community of faith, with Jesus, God-with-us, our companion on the way, we ought really to be free from deep fear, because “all shall be well.” Let us hear again the words, “Courage! It is I! Do not be afraid.” Prayer: Lord, save us when circumstances seem to overwhelm us, when we cannot see our way forward, when we find ourselves sinking. Take us by the hand and lead to the open space of freedom and confidence in you.

Prayer of Blessed John Henry Newman: O Lord, support us all the day long, until the shadows lengthen, the evening comes, and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done. Then, Lord, in thy mercy, grant us a safe lodging, a holy rest, and peace at the last.

Prayer for Vocations

Blessed Trinity, Father, Son and Spirit,

we worship and praise You.

Father, through the Holy Spirit you give to every Christian a unique calling as you provide and care for the needs of your people.

Hear our prayers for our needs as parish communities. Bless our efforts to strengthen lay ministry. In our diocese and in all our parishes give to each person the grace

to discern, follow and live their calling.

Call forth from among us vocations to the diocesan priesthood. Fill the hearts of our priests and deacons with renewed Peace and Joy. Father, in all things ‘Thy will be done’.

We entrust our prayers to you through Christ our Lord. Amen.
