October 22

Elementary: 

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

Luke (12:1ff) speaks about how much God loves us all:

… Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten in God's sight. But even the hairs of your head are all counted. Do not be afraid; you are of more value than many sparrows.

The Gospel of the Lord. Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ.

On October 18th 1929, Canadian women were officially recognized as persons.

Interesting eh?

Up until this time in Canada, women did not even have the official right to be considered persons.  This day is a reminder that we should have compassion on all those who suffer from unjust discrimination just because they are women. We are all the loved children of God.

We pray to a woman whose value in God's eyes allowed the son of God to be born into the world:

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 live in your grace.

Let us live in your grace.

Let us live in your grace.
