What is wrong with the world today?

The scriptures for the 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time describe the End Times, and yet the eschatology of both the prophet Malachi and Gospel author Luke provide an important insight into our preoccupation… our “distraction” with the cataclysmic events in the world.  Instead of focusing on our own sinful ways and being true to Christ’s teachings, we are in Paul’s words from the 2nd Letter to the Thessalonians:  “conducting themselves among you in a
disorderly way,
 by not keeping busy but minding the business of others.

In our prayers…

As men of faith, we unite in prayer each day:  Morning, Evening & Night to pray the Liturgy of the Hours, the sacred prayer of the church.  Especially at those times we remember those who are in need:  for healing, guidance, courage in the face of life’s challenges, and of course, those departed and no longer with us.

We believe that our prayers are both heard… and acted upon by our gracious and loving God.  Yet we know that often the answer to the prayer requests may be answered in ways that we neither expect, nor necessarily understand.  Truly, our prayers are in God’s hands!

Join us in adding your requests to our daily prayers:  our deacons will receive your Prayer Request and pray on your behalf for the next 30 days. It’s very easy to make a request… it will take you but a moment.  Then it’s in our helping hands and His.  Here’s the link:  http://www.deacons.us/prayer-request

God Bless!
