Letter from Father Richard
“Oremus pro invicem” Let us pray for one another. So often in life, people ask us to pray for them. So often, unknown to us, those who love us are praying for us to God. Praying for our good.
In the Gospels, often people plead with Jesus on behalf of others. Today it is the Canaanite woman who pleads with Him on behalf of her daughter. Gender, religion, status are no bargaining chips with God. Prayer from a loving heart has to be heard by the God of Love.
Prayer must be the first in our quiver of arrows with which we are armed to fight on the cause of right. Prayer is always the first resort in the life of the Christian, never the last.
Have a good week.
