More than ever I feel the need of having Thee close to me.
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” I will all the more gladly boast of my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities; for when I am weak, then I am strong.

Peace in Syria - pray and fast today!
Shlom lekh bthoolto Mariam....
A Prayer for Peace in Syria
Hold back the hand of our politicians O Lord
let them not strike those whom they wish to destroy,
regardless of blame and accusation.
Let your Peace triumph so that little children may live and grow in your love.
And, with the intercession of your Blessed Mother whose wishes you have always granted, bring peace to Syria and her neighbours,
Bring your light to the Islamists, dictators and foreign powers.
Give hope to your people, feed your lambs and guard your sheep.
Keep us from the easy solutions of retribution and vengeance,
bring us the gifts of wisdom and peace;
let good counsel prevail and, at all times, keep us within your fold.
