Prayer for the New Year

As the world awaits 
the coming year 
May Love, real love
Compassion
Generosity 
Empathy
Unity
Peace, Justice
Goodness
echo our heart's yearnings
And bells ring not only
to usher in a materially blessed year
but more for spiritual graces and blessings

We pray Lord grant us each
an openness and space for the poor in 
our midst
a ready hand to lend 
to anyone in need

May each heart O LORD, Creator of all
respond to Your Call of
oneness with those suffering
from sickness, poverty, and other ills;
with those differing from us in faith,
politics, race, color, creed
and other divisive walls
as well as a rejection of all that 
displeases You O Most Loving Merciful GOD

All these in Jesus' Name we pray. AMEN



O Dear Victim Soul I Pray

My prayer-poem for my Mom which I wrote 2 weeks after she passed away…

O Mom, my Dear Victim Soul, I Pray

In God’s Eternal Peace

Find Your Rest;

Ever do I offer my unending love

And cherished memories of you…

In God’s Eternal Kingdom, you are

Surrounded by Angels and Saints;

So now I seek your own

Holy Intercession;

Watch over us here your family

While we still journey as

Earth’s Pilgrims…

With Mary and the Saints

Bring us closer to God in faith

Each day, I pray

Amen
