A Prayer to Love God Even More

Lord Jesus,  I see and feel that my love  is only a pale shadow  compared to the flame  of your love for me.  Give me a heart as vast as the universe.  so that I may love you - if not as much as you deserve-  at least as much as I can.
AMEN 
(Prayer of St Frances Xavier Cabrini)

Prayer to Live What Jesus Taught

O Lord Jesus Christ,  grant us a measure of your Spirit.  Help us to obey your teaching,  soothe anger,  overcome desire, increase love, cast off sorrow,  shun vainglory,  renounce revenge,  and not be afraid of death.  Let us ever entrust our spirit to the everlasting God who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and rules forever and ever.
AMEN
(Prayer of St. Apollonius of Rome, ?-185)

A Culture of Vocations

Ever since I was a young kid, maybe in kindergarten or so, I was constantly in love with the church. I was fascinated with priests lives and their role during the mass too- It was always something so amazing, so attractive to me as a child. As I grew up I began to be inspired by my parish priest who would teach me many things about the faith, encourage me in my faith journey, and who would always answer any question I had ever though of about the faith. Further, he would be my guide to becoming an altar server and on how priests lived. Never did he once put me down, suppress my enthusiasm or tell me to leave him alone. He always invited me to ask, to learn, and to talk about anything and everything. It was through this priests example that my own calling, vocation and my own personal interest in the church, grew and grew, was made to feel that it was a normal calling to have and it was always supported.



     This is a support that is and was very much needed in my life, and in a…

Prayer For Vocations

O God, Father of all Mercies, Provider of a bountiful Harvest,
send Your Graces upon those You have called to gather the fruits of Your labor; preserve and strengthen them in their lifelong service of you.
Open the hearts of Your children that they may discern Your Holy Will; inspire in them a love and desire to surrender themselves to serving others in the name of Your son, Jesus Christ.
Teach all Your faithful to follow their respective paths in life guided by Your Divine Word and Truth. Through the intercession of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary, all the Angels, and Saints, humbly hear our prayers and grant Your Church's needs, through Christ, our Lord. 
Amen.



Loving and Generous God, it is You who call us by name and ask us to follow You. Help us to grow in the Love and Service of our Church as we experience it today.
Give us the energy and courage of Your Spirit to shape its future
Grant us faith-filled leaders who will embrace Christ's Mission of love and justice.
Bless you…

The Intimate Shepherd

The other day I was talking to some of my closest, longest friends. As we were talking we were thinking about how we all met each other and who introduced who to each other, and we began to share what we all first thought of each other when we first met them. This not only made me thankful for these amazing people, but also the different meaningful relationships that we can develop throughout our lives, even in a mere number of years. It also made me realize the miracle that is our friendship and the journey that we have all been on and how no matter what has happened to us, we all have remained friends. A miracle, indeed!

      Each and every one of our lives is filled with many different interactions with friends, family and strangers. Each of these relationships in some shape or form has helped each of grow and become who we are today. Depending on how important each of these relationships is to us, depends on the strength of our commitment and effort that we put into them. …
