February 1

Elementary:

In the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit …

February is Black History month where we focus on remembering  and praying for important people and events in the history of the black peoples of the Americas. In Canada we have Viola Desmond took an anti-segregation stand in a Nova Scotia theater by sitting in the whites-only section in 1946. She was then arrested and fined, but she helped inspire the country's Civil Rights movement.  Viola appears now on our ten dollar bills.

Our faith teaches us that all peoples are valued and equal in the eyes of God. Let us celebrate the gifts of one another in our world.  Jesus sends his disciples, us, into the world to help people recognize him among them.

Walking with Jesus brings hope and meaning into the coldest as well as the warmest times of our lives. 

Take a moment and ask yourself, "what can I do to bring Jesus to the people and the world around me?  How can I walk with another person the way Jesus did and does?

Let us pray the prayer Jesus taught his sisters and brothers…

Our Father ….

As Jesus disciples on our mission we continue our day in the name of the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Amen

In the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit …

February is Black History month where we focus on remembering important people and events in the history of the black peoples of the Americas. In Canada we have Viola Desmond who took an anti-segregation stand in a Nova Scotia theater by sitting in the whites-only section in 1946. She was then arrested and fined, but she helped inspire the country's Civil Rights movement.  Viola appears now on our ten-dollar bills.

Our faith teaches us that all peoples are valued and equal in the eyes of God. Let us celebrate the gifts of one another in our world.  Viola had great courage and honour, another set of gifts we can celebrate are the consecrated people in our communities.  Tomorrow is the World Day for Consecrated Life established by Saint John Paul II in 1997. On this day we celebrate and show our support for all people who have chosen to follow Christ by means of the practice of the evangelical counsels: poverty, chastity and obedience.

Walking with Jesus brings hope and meaning into the coldest as well as the warmest times of our lives. 

Take a moment and ask yourself, "what can I do to bring Jesus to the people and the world around me?
