We strive to love God and love our neighbor as ourselves by gratefully sharing our many gifts from God
our God, when your Son was dying on the altar of
the cross, he gave us as our mother the one he had
chosen to be his own mother, the Blessed Virgin
Mary; grant that we who call upon the holy name of
Mary, our mother, with confidence in her
protection may receive strength and comfort in all

The way to know Jesus "is to keep his commandments." (1 John 2:3) Examine your conscience about which of the commandments (10 Mosaic or the 2 Great Commandments) is the most difficult for you. Can you entrust this discernment to your spouse? How can you support each other with your challenge?
Wednesday, April 22, is Earth Day. In preparation, why don't you and your children clean up some of God's creation. Pick a park, a street, a place of nature to clear of litter. For inspiration check out: Daniel 3:57-81

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 WE DO!
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

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
