A Summer Prayer –

Father, creator of all, thank you for summer.  Thank you for the warmth of the sun and the increased daylight.  Thank you for the beauty I see all around me and for the opportunity to be outside and enjoy your creation. 

Thank you for the increased time I have to be with my family and friends and for the more casual pace of the summer season.  Draw me closer to you this summer. Teach me how I can pray, no matter where I am or what I am doing.  Warm my soul with the awareness of your presence and light my path with your word and counsel. 

As I enjoy your creation, create in me a pure heart and a hunger and a thirst for you.

The Journey of Life

Sacred Heart of Jesus

As we journey through life

We face the mysteries

Of love and hate,

Of friendship and loneliness,

Of joy and sorrow,

Of suffering and death.

Sacred heart of Jesus,

Help us believe, in the midst

Of doubt and uncertainty.

Help us to hope, in the midst of hate,

Selfishness and rejection

 O Sacred Heart of Jesus, we place all our trust in you


One tree can start a forest.

One smile can begin a friendship.

One hand can lift a soul.

One word can frame the goal.

One candles can wipe out darkness.

One laugh can conquer gloom.

One hope can raise your spirits.

One touch can show you care.

One life can make a difference.

Be that one today.
