WOMEN OF PRAYER MORNING OF REFLECTION

Fr. Jonathan will continue his series of talks on the Blessed Mother. The next one is in June. Please mark your calendars.

  • Saturday, June 24 - Mary’s Assumption

    At the talk on April 22nd entitled, "Mary, Mother of God", Fr. Jonathan recommended the following spiritual readings:

    Strangers in a Strange Land by Charles J. Chaput, Archbishop of Philadelphia. It is about living the Catholic Faith in a Post-Christian World. The book is a vivid critique of American life today, and a guide to how Christians (and particularly Catholics) can live their faith vigorously, even with hope in a post-Christian public square.

    Women of Prayer Canticle

    Dear Lord Jesus,

    We ask You to bless this group of women
    who have gathered in Your Name.
    Instill in us a fervent desire
    to join with each other in prayer.
    Open our hearts to Your grace,
    that we might feel Your presence and hear You call to us,
    whether in a resounding voice or a gentle whisper.

    Help us to love one another as You have loved us.
    To always reach out as a friend,
    though we ourselves may be lonely.
    To show the compassion of Christ to those seeking comfort,
    though we ourselves may be weak in spirit.

    To help carry someone else’s cross with our one hand
    as we struggle with our own cross with the other.
    To learn how to listen with our minds
    but speak with our hearts.
    To offer up to You our weaknesses,
    so that you may work through them

    to bring those seeking direction in their lives
    closer to You.
    Teach us to be open to Your will,
    that by the intercession of our Blessed Mother,
    we too can answer,
    “May it be done to me according to Your Word.” (Luke 1:38)

    Amen.
