Reflection Corner: Mercy –Filled New Year!
Welcoming the Year 2016, Pope Francis emphasized the need to "let ourselves be reborn, to overcome the indifference which blocks solidarity," He recommended cooperation as the way to build an "ever more just and fraternal world, a world in which every person and every creature can dwell in peace." The Catholic Church dedicates New Year's Day to the theme of peace, and Francis this year is stressing mercy as the path toward reconciliation.
Dearest God of New Beginnings,
You have a plan and purpose for each day of 2016.
We humbly ask for your guidance and loving direction.
We ask for a deeper motivations and zeal to fulfill our mission as parents and formators of the heart, mind, and conscience of our dear children. We ask for compassion and mercy to help us move through our days with greater love and care for them and for one another. We ask this through the loving intercession of Our Patroness, Our Lady of Mercy.
Thank you, Mrs. Hogan!
