In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
Today is the National Day for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and we pray for all involved. Murder destroys the human family and effects all God's children!
Let us reflect on becoming more caring families. Listen to this description of family when we are at our best.
This reflection is called:
In Our Home…
In our Home:
We encourage one another,
We build up one another,
We are at peace with each other,
We seek to do good,
We give thanks,
We pray constantly,
In our Home.
We grow up, leaving home at some point, and move into the sometimes-scary world.
Mother Teresa's give voice to our responsibility for embracing the gift of our life:
Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.
We honour our heavenly Mother Mary and ask her prayers for protection and healing as we prayer:
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy 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 of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
