Praying the Word

February 21, 2023, Tuesday of the 7th Week in Ordinary Time-A

Sirach 2:1-11

Psalm 37

Mark 9:30-37

Trust God and he will help you, make straight your ways and hope in him.  Sirach 2:6

Lord, we trust in a lot of things throughout our day. I trust my car will stop when I step on the brakes. I trust my doctor to remove my tumor. I trust the pilots who fly the plane carrying my family. I trust the food I get in a restaurant, that the mail will be delivered and that the sun will rise tomorrow. You so want me to trust in you for everything. My faith tells me you hear all my prayers, are constantly watching over me and can see into the depths of my heart. You know exactly what I need at all times and every situation. On top of all that, Lord, you are good, loving and all powerful. So, what’s not to trust? When troubles pile up it can be hard to see how you are helping me. That’s when I can make the choice to trust you or to doubt. You know how weak I can be at times especially when trials come. Keep me on the straight and narrow, Lord. I trust you’ve got everything under control, and I can be at peace knowing that all of me is in good hands.  Amen.  

The Nativity of the Lord (Christmas)

An Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen

Community Cenacolo


5:00 PM – St. Mary Catholic Church

Community Cenacolo is a Catholic residential community that invites young adults struggling with addiction, depression and loneliness to experience freedom from the chains that bind them. They live in community, receive the Sacraments, work, and together find healing from their pain. This community thrives on divine providence – there is no cost to the families. Come hear about the restoration and redemption available in St. Augustine, FL. There is so much more to say, so come hear for yourselves. If you are a person who works with young people this is essential for you to help those who fall into the epidemic of addiction! Residents will come to share their personal stories. CCW is hosting this event and it is FREE and FOR ALL in Brevard County and beyond. Invite anyone you know who might benefit.
