Prayer of the Week (Nov 24, 2014):
PRAYER FOR GRANDMOTHERS
We thank You, God, for all grandmothers, those who are still with us today and those who have passed over to the fullness of life in Christ. Their love and wisdom have helped to shape us into who we are, and we have learned about how to love you and how to love each other through their kind words and actions, by their simple, humble example. Let us never underestimate the power of grandmas! Bless each of them and show us how to honor them in ways that let them know how much they mean to us and are pleasing in your sight. Amen.
Welcome, Friend of Saint Gerard!
In Christ our Redeemer,
Fr. Allan Weinert, C.Ss.R.
