World Day of Prayer for Hurricane Victims

Today we gathered all together to pray for all those effected by Katrina. Material needs are greatly needed. Offering prayer is an enormous relief as well. I was thinking the other day regarding all the times that we find ourselves waiting in line or stuck in a traffic jam that I would offer this as a prayer for all those who had to wait 5 days for water and food. It's just a thought.

On this day when we remember September 11th I would like to share with you a prayer that Fr Mychal used to say often. He was the chaplain to the firemen who were the heros of 9/11. He died ministering to them. Fr. Mychal we ask that you watch over all rescue workers and those victims of Katrina right now from heaven.

Father Mychal's Prayer

Lord, take me where
you want me to go;
Let me meet who
you want me to meet;
Tell me what
you want me to say, and
Keep me out of your way.
—Fr. Mychal Judge, O.F.M.
Chaplain, New York Fire Department

Entance Into Postulancy

We rejoice with Neville and Julie as they have officially begun their Postulancy among us. The entire community gathered for the cermony. As a sign of our prayer for Neville and Julie a picture of the Divine Master and a booklet on the Pact was given. Each one was called by name to receive these and light a candle as a sign of their yes to God in their desire to begin this time of postulancy.
