DEPENDING ON GOD WHEN LIFE GETS TOUGH Lord, we are creatures of comfort who want everything to be easy. As our students journey to independent living, they will most certainly encounter difficulties along the way. We pray that they will have the spiritual maturity to seek Your help and guidance right away when trouble comes. Thank You for giving them the confidence of knowing that this world's troubles will not overcome them because they belong to You and You have overcome the world. Amen.
Glorious Saint Michael, guardian and defender of the Church of Jesus Christ, come to the assistance of His followers, against whom the powers of hell are unchained. Guard with special care our Holy Father, the Pope, and our bishops, priests, all our religious and lay people, and especially the children.
Feb. 27 1633,George Herbert, Priest and Poet. Our God and King, who called your servant George Herbert from the pursuit of worldly honors to be a pastor of souls, a poet, and a priest in your temple: Give us grace, we pray, joyfully to perform the tasks you give us to do, knowing that nothing is menial or common that is done for your sake; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
