October 20th

We begin in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.​

Luke (12:1ff) speaks about how much God loves us all:

… Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten in God's sight. But even the hairs of your head are all counted. Do not be afraid; you are of more value than many sparrows.

The Gospel of the Lord. Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ.

October 18th in Canada we celebrate that on this day in 1929 that women were officially recognized as persons. Interesting eh? Up until this time in Canada, women did not even have the official right to be considered persons.  This day is a reminder that we should have compassion on all those who suffer from unjust discrimination just because they are women. We are all the dear children of God.

We pray:

God of faith, you call us to be thoughtful believers.

Let us live in your grace.

God of faith, you call us to create faith-filled schools.

Let us live in your grace.

God of faith, You touch us through prayer, scripture, goodness, truth and beauty.

Let us live in your grace.

God of faith, You call us to celebrate the signs of Your loving presence.

Let us live in your grace.

Creator God:

We thank You for food and remember the hungry.

We thank You for health and remember the sick.

We thank You for friends and remember the friendless.

We thank You for freedom and remember the enslaved and those living in violence each day.

May these memories stir us to service,

That Your gifts to us may be used for others.

Amen.

Hail Mary

Full of grace,

The Lord is with you.

Blessed are you among women

and Blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, mother of God,

Pray for us sinners now

and at the hour of our death. Amen.

In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.  Amen.
