Prayers

Opening:

Lord Jesus Christ, give me faith, boldness, and courage to stand firm in the truth of the Gospel and to not waver in my testimony of your love and mercy. Give me hope and joy in the promise of everlasting life with you in your kingdom.

Read:

2 Thessalonians 3: 6-10, 16-18;

Psalm 128: 1-2, 4-5;

Mark 6: 17-29

Are you prepared to be a witness, and if necessary, a martyr for Jesus Christ? 

For reflection:

“What I’ve learned from running is that the time to push hard is when you’re hurting like crazy and you want to give up. Success is often just around the corner.”  -James Dyson

Saint of the day

Memorial of the Passion of St. John the Baptist
