Prayer of the Day

Fourteenth Week of the Year – Feast of St. Maelruain, Bishop & Abbot

July 7th, 2016
"Go, and proclaim this message; 'The Kingdom of Heaven is near.' Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers and drive out demons." Matthew 10 : 7
Kingdom of Heaven is near

The Gospel today is like a missionary discourse and it emphasises two fundamental commitments of the disciples which are logically consistent with those of Jesus; to proclaim the Kingdom and to liberate people from evil and pain.  The world is wide open to the evangelizer;  some awaits his word while others reject it.

Prayer

Give us O Lord the courage to proclaim your message and always reach out to others. Amen
