Elementary:

We sign ourselves as Christians in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Today we remember St.Marguerite D'Youville, a French Canadian widow who founded the Order of Sisters of Charity of Montreal, commonly known as the Grey Nuns of Montreal. Our Pasqua Hospital in Regina used to be called the Grey Nuns Hospital.

She was canonized by Pope John-Paul II of the Roman Catholic Church in 1990, the first native-born Canadian to be declared a saint. Marguerite cared for the poor and because of her work schools, hospitals, and orphanages throughout Canada, the United States, Africa, and South America grew up. She is inspirational to many.

Today is also World Food Day as the United Nations set aside a day to keep us aware of the terrible problems around the world arising from poverty. Twenty-five thousand children die every day around the world due to extreme poverty & hunger.

In St. Paul's letter to the Romans he wrote (Rom 1:1-7):

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Grace is God's energy within us. Today we promise to use God's gifts to make changes in our lives, and we commit ourselves to working towards a world where poverty, hunger and discrimination is history.

Amen.

Let us pray to our blessed mother. 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.

Let us pray that poverty & hunger become history.

Christ our Lord,
your light shines into the shadows,
and shows us
where the obstacles to change lie.
We know that often
they are in our own hearts,
in the way we live,
and in our daily choices and actions. We pray that we may accept the light of your love
as a challenge to change
ourselves and our world.

We pray that, each day,
we make the choices and
take the actions
that will bring an end to poverty and hunger,
and lead us all
towards a fairer world.

Be with us, Creator God,
as we face the challenge to serve
and learn how to live
our lives in love. 

Amen.

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