June 7 Daily Prayer & Update

Today’s Prayer – June 7

by Fr. Pete Literal, Pastor

Abba, Father in heaven, loving and merciful Triune God, we praise You and thank You for what You have done for our world and Your people. On this Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity, we celebrate the life of love You have modeled for us. You love us unconditionally and unceasingly. Despite all our sins, You showed Your willingness for Your only begotten Son to suffer and die that we may have life. For You love the world that You are unwilling to leave us in our sinfulness. You are truly an amazing God of love, worthy of our praises and worship. You are one God in three Divine Persons, whose relationship is one of complete self-gift and outpouring of love. You are love itself.

Today we rejoice and celebrate what You have revealed, and accept with joy the invitation to know You more and find fulfillment in knowing You, even if we will never fully know You. You are our loving Father, who created us. You are Jesus, the anointed one, who redeemed us. And You are the Holy Spirit, the source and giver of life, who loves us. We come to You praying humbly for Your grace to make us worthy to have a relationship with You so that we are changed completely in spirit and truth.

Awesome God, in three Divine Persons, we pray for Your mercy and love to reign on our nation and communities. You are the amazing God, who, despite the waywardness of Your people, took pity on us and sent Jesus, Your Son, to suffer and die that sins could be forgiven, and we can live a new life. How consoling it is for us to see Your Holy Spirit giving us chance after chance to change our ways. Father, Son and Holy Spirit, we thank You for everything You have done. We ask for the grace to love You in return and love our brothers and sisters as well.

We ask this through Jesus Christ, Our Lord.

Amen.

Pray the daily Sacred Scripture and be transformed in spirit and truth.

Today’s Update – June 7

For those who’ve decided to attend Mass in-person this weekend, we’re thrilled to welcome you back home!

And if you’re not yet comfortable or are in a vulnerable group, we completely understand and hope you’ll join us for Live-streamed Mass on Facebook at 9:00 AM. Dispensation from the Sunday Mass obligation is still in effect.

If you’re coming to Mass, we suggest arriving 15-20 minutes before the scheduled start of Mass. Seating will be on a first come, first served basis, and ushers will begin seating from the front of the church to the back, with overflow in the church hall.

Please note that if we reach maximum capacity in the church, we will offer a virtual Mass venue in the church hall, where Mass will be live-streamed and Eucharistic Ministers will bring Communion to those in the hall at the appropriate time.
