This Weekend, May 12th and 13th: Please pray for thirty-three First Communicants and their families as they celebrate this weekend at the 4:30pm and 10:15am Masses here at St. Mary's of the Lake. Here is a Prayer To Be One With Christ: Dear Lord Jesus, You said, "I am the vine, you are the branches...If you abide in me and my words abide in you, ask whatever you will and it shall be done for you." John 15:-7 My Savior, I ask You to fill their heart and soul with faith, hope and love so that they may bear only good fruit for the Kingdom of God. Abide in them each day of their life, for they cannot bring forth fruit all by themselves. Amen.
In the words of Pope Francis: "May the God of peace arouse in all an authentic desire for dialogue and reconciliation. Violence cannot be overcome with violence. Violence is overcome with peace." Please take a moment to pray and ponder this prayer from the Saint Mary's Press Catholic Youth Prayer Book titled: "There Is So Much": To Jesus, who calmed the stormy sea: There is so much pressure, there is so much hurt, there is so much Confusion, there is so much noise. Jesus, please calm this storm, so that I may sit peacefully in His boat with You. Amen.
Our next Coffee and Conversation is scheduled to be held on Monday, June 4th immediately following the morning Mass. As of this writing, we do not yet have a sponsor...any brave souls out there who would like to volunteer their time and talent extending some good old fashioned hospitality together with a few sweets to tempt the guests? Thank you to the Queen of Heaven Small Christian Community for sponsoring our May gathering.
