Scripture Verse for August 2020 and Questions:
Proverbs 21:1. “The King’s heart is a stream of water in the hand of the Lord; he turns it whenever he will.”
Biblical Note: The stream of water is the will of the king, which is directed by the Lord. Even the political life of nations and their rulers is governed by the mystery of Divine Providence
Paragraph #269 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church says: “Nothing is impossible with God, who disposes his works according to his will. He is the Lord of the universe, whose order he established and which remains wholly subject to himself and at his disposal. He is master of history, governing hearts and events in keeping with his will: . . .”
In answering the questions, please refer to the biblical note and the Catechism paragraph above.
1. If the “stream of water” symbolizes the king’s will, what does that suggest about the political life of nations and their rulers?
2. How willing are you to acknowledge that the will of God is being worked out through the political life of our nation?
3. Where do you see the need for intercessory prayer?
Respect Life Prayer
We see life cheapened every day through abortion and other forms of abuse, through terrorism, and other acts of violence, and through neglect of children, the poor, and the elderly.
In a world of plenty, we can forget that there is nothing more precious than human life.
Give us the grace to see how we can make a difference, and encourage change in our culture.
Inspire us with the stories of Mary and other mothers of unexpected pregnancies, who knew that every child is a gift of God's grace and is wanted by you in this world.
Encourage conviction in the hearts of those who do not yet know or understand that a desire for choice is no reason to end any life and that you desire that all life come only to a natural end in you.

Reflection for April 2020
We are living in unprecedented times. At this time of being separated from one another and from the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist it should kindle in our hearts a yearning and desire to be once again united to Christ in the sacrament. There have been prayers worldwide for the healing of our world and I hope you have had the opportunity to join in and continue to pray for all of humanity. If you have ever watched the mass on EWTN you have probably heard the Spiritual Communion Prayer. This prayer can be of some comfort:
I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.
