Prayer for those going on holidays:

Dear God, thank you that we are able to go on holiday and discover new places in your world. We ask that you protect us from harm during our holidays. But if difficulties do arise, please help us not to panic or despair. Instead, help us to be like St Paul who, in the middle of a storm, stayed calm and encouraged other people to do the same.

FEASTS of the WEEK:Thursday: St Lawrence of Brindisi. He was a member of the Capuchin Order and a preacher. Friday: Mary Magdalene. She was a close friend of Jesus. She stood by the cross with Jesus and with two other women discovered the empty tomb on the day of Resurrection. Later that day the Risen Lord appeared to her and because she passed that news onto the other disciples, she is often referred to as the apostle to the apostles. Mary Magdalene is often identified with the sinful woman who anointed Christ’s feet (Luke’s Gospel) There is no evidence in the Gospel that Mary Magdalene was a sinner nor was she Mary the sister of Martha. She was just a loyal woman, like millions of loyal women in the Church today. Saturday: St Bridget of Sweden.

 

A Celtic Blessing: May the blessing of light be on you, light without and light within. / May the blessed sunlight shine upon you and warm your heart, so that the stranger and the friend are always welcome. / May the light shine out from your eyes so that people may come to you as a wanderer takes shelter from a storm. / May the blessing of rain be upon you, soft and sweet; may it fall upon your spirit and your fields so that all good things may grow. / May the blessing of the earth be upon you, so that you may ever have a kindly greeting for people you meet. / And may the blessing of the stars be upon youso that you may know that the Lord blesses you always in your sleeping and in your waking. Amen
