Reflection on Love and Mercy

As we begin this mission with the theme of Love and Mercy it is fitting that today’s morning prayer from the Divine office we pray the following:
“As morning breaks we sing of your mercy, Lord….”
“It is good to give thanks to The Lord… To proclaim your love in the morning…”
And from this morning’s intercessions:
“Grant that we bear witness to you today, Lord, and offer an acceptable gift to the Father through you.”
-Perfect us in love, Lord.
“Enable us to see your image in all men, and to serve you in them.”
-Perfect us in love, Lord.
The universal Church is praying these words as we set out on our mission.  Let us be strengthened by these prayers and joyfully proclaim the good news by our own words and actions this week and always.
Peace be with you,
Deacon Bill Barnes
