Every day we need to reflect on and count our blessings from God. How often do we do this? When was the last time we truly offered a heartfelt, and soul stirring prayer of gratitude and thanks to Almighty God? We need to pray to the Holy Spirit for the grace of gratitude and thanksgiving to touch our hearts. We need to pray for ourselves and for others, that the Holy Spirit will renew our entire being, and fill us with hope and trust in the Lord. Prayer changes things and moves all things, in God’s divine time. Please join me in helping to foster a spirit of prayer within our parish community in order to encourage us in our faith. May we remain dedicated in prayer for the continued repair, renewal, and restoration of our parish, the city, the southeast Texas community, and this nation. Let us prayerfully give praise and thanks to God!
