Greetings on this the feast of the Ascension of our Lord. I invite you to join with Christians throughout the world in using the days from today the Ascension through the Day of Pentecost, Sunday, June 2nd, in praying intentionally each day “for the coming of God’s Kingdom.” In praying “THY KINGDOM COME” we are invited to commit to playing our part in the renewal of the nations and all peoples as we intercede for the transformation of all communities. In your praying you may wish to keep-in-mind particular persons in need of hearing the good news of the Gospel; those in need of the transforming love of Jesus and the fellowship of His Church. Pray for each by name and be strengthened in knowing that countless men and women throughout the world along with all the Angels and Saints join with you in this good work, ending with the prayer Jesus taught each to pray; “OUR FATHER….”
May the joy of Mary the Mother of our Risen and Ascended Lord, honored by us as Our Lady of Walsingham, encourage you always to be faithful in prayer.
