Dear brothers and sisters of Christ-

  Next Sunday, October 23, Pope Benedict XVI calls every Catholic in the world to celebrate our vocations to be missionary. It’s World Mission Sunday! As Catholics around the world, here at home, and in missions gather at the Eucharist around the table of the Lord, we are to pray for the Catholic’s worldwide missionary work. We pray for those awaiting the ‘Good News’ of our Lord great love for us and for missionaries who offer the poor and suffering the light of Christ.

 We are offering financial help though the society for the Propagation of the faith  for more than 1,150 dioceses in Asia, Africa, America, and the Pacific Islands. Your generosity will help make a faith filled difference  around the world toward those in need. See the World Mission Sunday webpage for more information.     @ http://www.iamamissionary.org     



Joyce Meyers Food For The Soul



‘Compassionate God, your generous presence is always attuned to hurting ones Your listening ear is bent toward the cries of the wounded. Your heart of love fills with tears for the suffering.  Turn my inward eye to see that I am not alone. I am part of all life. Each one’s joy and sorrow, and mine is theirs.  May I draw strength from this inner communion. May it daily recommit me to be a  compassionate presence for all who struggle with life pains.


Joyce Rupp OSM writer.

  1. I especially like your last paragraph – and I did start a blog – two in fact – just a few months ago! I always write letters to my children at Christmas – sometimes more often, but at least once a year. They know their letters will be in their stockings! Probably wouldn’t do anything you said not to – just a little bit inhibited! But that’s just me. Congratulations on being freshly pressed!
