THE COUPLE THAT PRAYS TOGETHER STAYS TOGETHER.

 Fr. Johnny Doherty, C.Ss.R.

 May 27th – June 2nd 2018

 The Holy Trinity

Jesus said to his disciples: “Know that I am with you always; yes, to the end of time.” What a wonderful consolation and strength this promise that Jesus made to us is for his followers! He is with us in so many ways – in the Sacraments; in the Eucharist; in our prayers. But Jesus is especially with us always in our love relationships, especially in marriage and family life. He is also with us through our faith community. That is the meaning of being a parish – a people among whom Jesus lives. And the wonderful thing is that he is also present to our world always through us. We have a serious responsibility to build our homes and parishes into real living communities of faith and love so that Jesus can bring salvation to our world and so that our God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit may be praised and glorified.

 Morning Prayer, when together

Father, you sent your Word to bring us truth

and your Spirit to make us holy.

Through them we come to know the mystery of your life.

Help us to worship you, one God in Three Persons,

by proclaiming and living our faith in you.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

 During the day, when apart

God of love,

make our love for each other holy.

Through our efforts to grow in love

make us a perfect offering to you.

We ask this through Christ Our Lord.

 Evening/Night Prayer together

Holy God, we worship you,

a Trinity of Persons, one eternal God.

May our faith, and the sacrament of marriage

bring us health of mind and body.

We ask this through Christ Our Lord.
