Machnamh / Reflection
God, our Father,
We are brothers and sisters in Jesus your Son,
One family, in the Spirit of your love.
Bless us with the joy of love.
Make us patient and kind,
gentle and generous,
welcoming to those in need.
Help us to live your forgiveness and peace.
Protect all families with your loving care,
Especially those for whom we now pray:
Increase our faith,
Strengthen our hope,
Keep us safe in your love,
Make us always grateful for the gift of life that we share.
This we ask, through Christ our Lord,
Repentance is something essentially positive. True, to repent is to admit that all is not well with oneself. But it is also to discove something wonderful about oneself, namely, that one has potentialities which one didn’t know one had. It means acquiring a new vision, taking a new direction, setting oneself more worthwhile goals, living by better values. In a word, it means a new life.
Pray for Raymond O’Sullivan, John St.
