Prayer of the Day

Feast of St. Jarlath, Bishop

June 6th, 2016
"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven." Matthew 5 : 1 - 12

The very title of Pope John Paul’s II Evangelical is “The God of Happiness.”  He arouses in us the desire for happiness,  and through Jesus Christ leads us to the path of happiness known to Him alone.  Today’s Gospel is about happiness.  Beatitudes challenge our idea of happiness. Poverty and suffering may be the direct road to happiness.  Jesus chose this path.  He tells us this is the way to His Father’s Kingdom.


Lord, we turn to you always in our times of trouble. We believe that you will fill us with peace, joy, and salvation. We ask this through Christ, Our Lord. Amen
