Monthly Intentions for July

WE PRAY
That all may share the responsibility of making correct moral choices
To create
Loving communities
Where all people live with dignity as children of God
With social justice, in peace
In a nation that is
FREE.

In Thanksgiving

We give thanks for the many brave men and women through the years who have stood watch, and defended in battle the nation we call “home.” We are grateful and praise our God for our faith, our homeland, our homes, our families. We give thanks for all the things given to us each day that we take for granted: water, clothing, food, work, shelter, opportunity, freedom, talent, education, crosses, suffering, blessings, mercy, Eucharist, creation, light and dark, sun, moon, and those too numerous to mention. And we give thanks for the Father, Son and Holy Spirit  now and through eternity.

–Pat Cetera, OFS
