Prayer of the Day
Fifth Sunday of the YearFebruary 5th, 2017
The Gospels highlight the need for unity in families and communities. In it Jesus comments on the ridicule of the Pharisees that He operates through Beelzebub, remarking that if that is so, then it means that the power of evil is finished. Similarly, if we disagree continually among ourselves, then conflict becomes the order of the day, instead of peacemaking and compromise. Personal conflicts can lead to increased tension resulting in local & national contests for superiority.
We pray for interior peace, and for help and guidance in promoting good relationships among others. Amen
