Gracious God, your
Son Jesus Christ
gave us the confidence
to call you Father. We believe you care for
us. We believe also
in the communion
of saints. With
confidence we ask
St. Jude, patron of
difficult cases, to pray
with us, for our
special intentions....
Thank you, God,
for hearing our prayer.

Love Overcame by Julie Palmer

I asked for Strength ….
and God gave me Difficulties to make me strong.

I asked for Wisdom ….
and God gave me Problems to solve.

I asked for Love ….
and God gave me Troubled people to help.

I received nothing I wanted ….
I received everything I needed!

May God Bless You.

May Goodness, Kindness and Mercy come your way.

And may you gain Wisdom and grow in the Lord everyday.
