Let brotherly love continue. Do not neglect hospitality, for through it some have unknowingly entertained angels…
Let marriage be honored among all and the marriage bed be kept undefiled,
-Today’s Reading, Hebrews:13
Wait on the Lord: be of good courage and He shall strengthen thine heart.
Wait, I say, on the Lord.
Holy Mother, Immaculate Conception, you came to Lourdes to show us your Son’s healing power, to assure us that you will come even to a dump, to call us back to Him, to assure us of your presence and love in the worst of circumstances. At Fatima you rose to warn us of the consequences of our disastrous course; that our rebellion and and rejection of you would, of itself, lead us to ruin, even as you assured us of God’s continuing love and tender desire to call us back to safety. Now, we wait on you. Teach us to care for one another, in the sure knowledge that when we do, we care for you and your Son. Let this be a time of fulfillment, trusting that even in the midst of sorrow and chaos, Our Lord’s tender, healing power will be fulfilled in all who call upon Him – particularly all who call on Him through you. Let this fulfillment begin with the healing of young Joey Cronin, as a sign of Our Lord’s presence in this world gone mad.
