The Simple Path to JOY for 2015


After several months hiatus, we are happy and honored to be back! Since it is a New Year, we begin with the basics: family prayer.

"The Family that prays together, 
STAYS together."
- Father Patrick Peyton (candidate for sainthood!)

Our monthly prayer intention is that all will return to (or begin) family prayer. You can begin as simply as praying grace before meals: 

"Bless  us O Lord and these Thy gifts which we are about to receive from Thy bounty. Through Christ our Lord, Amen."

Instill an attitude of gratitude whether you are single, or as a married couple. If you have children there is no better foundation you can give them, than to lead them into relationship with our Heavenly Father. When you lay this foundation it will last them a lifetime . . . leading them to rely on God rather than unsavory worldly sources who would corrupt them and lead them astray. 

Christians . . . when you give God a chance just watch the blessings flow! We also ask that you continue to pray for an end to the persecution and slaughter of our Iraqi Christian brothers and sisters who continue to suffer so greatly. Find out how you can help them and read about them here: CNEWA: A Papal Agency

May God greatly bless you and your families and lead you to Him throughout the New Year. Through Christ our Lord, Amen.

Please share this teaching with others who could benefit from it!
