Evangelization with a youthful perspective:
"Are you up for a Challenge? Here's a checklist for a 45-day Vocations Challenge. How about starting on Nov 6, Vocations Sunday? Or start on Nov 11 and finish on Christmas Day? Can you do it?"
WHAT KINDS OF PEOPLE become priests, sisters or brothers? Are they people who don't relate well with other people? No. They are people who love others - people who find real satisfaction chatting with a 93-year-old parishioner, holding the hand of a cancer patient, listening to the troubles of a streetwise teen. They are people with the courage to touch lives, hearts and souls in a high-tech, unchurched world. Are you that kind of person? Pray for "Yes" response to God's call.

Please encourage any men, in whom you see a possible call.

How can we protect our children when we don't respect life?
I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child - a direct killing of the innocent child - murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love, and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts.--Blessed Teresa of Calcutta
I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Choose life, then, that you and your descendants may live, by loving the LORD, your God, obeying his voice, and holding fast to him. For that will mean life for you, a long life for you to live on the land which the LORD swore to your ancestors, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give to them. Dt 30:19-20
Let us Pray: Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the malice and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.
LOVE is to will the good of the other.
Whom you would change, you must first love
and they must know that you love them. Martin Luther King

mercy of God!
Intercession: May all who suffer after abortion receive peace through Christ's Sacred Heart.
Prayers: Our Father, 3 Hail Mary's, Glory Be
Reflection: Recalling our sins, we may feel discouraged and fearful of approaching God. However, we can cling to the truth that Christ's Passion on the Cross did not end in death, but in the joy of the Resurrection. The power of the Resurrection gives us the courage to face our sins, confess our mistakes, and then humbly receive God's forgiveness and accept the joy that comes with new life in Christ.
As we celebrate the Sunday of Divine Mercy this weekend and continue our journey through this Easter season, let us reflect upon the profound and transformative gift of God's mercy in our lives. May the infinite depth and breadth of Christ's Divine Mercy remind us that no wound is too great for God to heal. Acts of Reparation (choose one)
One Step Further
If a friend confided that she had an abortion, would you be able to respond in a way that brings her closer to healing? "How to Talk to a Friend Who's Had an Abortion" gives suggestions for how you can be a channel of God's mercy.

By asking for the Lord's mercy, trusting in His mercy, and sincerely trying to live His mercy in our lives, we can assure that we will never hear Him say of us, "Their hearts are far from Me," but rather that wonderful promise, "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy."

conducted by him into Your Presence.This we ask through the merits
Jesus Christ Our Lord.

The Word of God
all, let your love for one another be intense, because
love covers a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one
another without complaining. As each one has
received a gift, use it to serve one another as good
stewards of God's varied grace. Whoever preaches, let it
be with the words of God; whoever serves, let it be with
the strength that God supplies, so that in all things God
may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong
glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen

the Meadows Catholic Church
You have been told, O mortal, what is good, and what the LORD requires of you:
Only to do justice and to love goodness, and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8
