Elementary:

We begin our prayer in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Remember when you had a really bad cold or flu – maybe you still have it – it feels awful!  Remember when someone came and cared for you and you slowly became healthy again - that was great! Our faith story is like this too.  We are called to love, heal, forgive and care for one another so we can be the best people we can be. This is a planet wide mission and it takes a long time!

 Today is the feast of St. Matthias who was chosen and called by the other apostles as the one to replace Judas. St. Matthias became a new member in the family of the followers of Jesus. His call was to continue to tell others of God's love for them.  This is the same call to us too.

Let us pray:

Lord, in our words and actions may we show others that we are listening to your call to be loving people.  May we call others to learn about your love Lord.

In Jesus name we make our prayer.

Amen

Mary, the Mother of the Church, … [Response: Pray for us.]

St. Matthias … Pray for us

We continue our day sharing God's calling to us through family, friends and the world in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

High School:

We begin our prayer in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Have you ever felt a little lost about who you are and where your life is going?

I hate to say it but, this is normal.

All of us are called by God to share our gifts in meaningful ways in our world – the word "vocation" comes from the latin "vocare" meaning "to call" or "to be called".  A healthy vocation is not a "job" but it is a way of living out who we really are inside – like a musician who makes music not to make money but because it is who they are.  To do otherwise may leave us feeling anxious and frustrated.  When we find our true vocation, we are most happy and content. When we share ourselves, we find out who we are – what we're made of.

God calls in many ways and for most of us, we'll have to try a few different things to find out what brings the most  meaning into our lives and how we live.

Today is the feast of St. Matthias who was chosen and called by the other apostles as the one to replace Judas. The disciples and apostles were a new and very diverse faith family following Jesus. In that family of believers, they discovered themselves and their self-worth.

Let us pray:

Lord, give us spiritual ears to hear where you are calling us to use our gifts and to share our lives.  Give us companions who are free to tell us about the gifts they see in us – and may we fearlessly return the favour.

Give us courage to live out faithful and meaningful lives that are not linked to simply making money but to doing good for all people and for you Lord.

In Jesus name we make our prayer.

Amen

Mary, the Mother of the Church, … [Response: Pray for us.]

St. Matthias … Pray for us

We continue our day listening for God's calling to us through family, friends and the world in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
