In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Please listen to this reflection written by Diana, a former student at a Catholic school student from Ontario:
In today's world, it is hard to think of all the good things we have. We always think of all the bad things that happen to us. War, terrorism, sickness; they are what we think of most. Dear God, help us to think of all the good things that are going on like peace, love, joy, family and friends. Help us to be thankful for these wonderful things. And when we go through bad times, help us to be strong. We need You God to guide us through our hard times. Please watch over us through our hard times. Please watch over us now and forever.
Diana's prayer asks that we look at how God can help us live out our values, dreams and talents to make our life and other's lives better.OCGE4g
Let us pray with the words that Jesus taught us:
Who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy Will be done,
on earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
We close our prayer in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
