Twenty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time
News and Notes:
Here is a Labor Day prayer for all those who are experiencing anxiety about their job:
“O God, who through human labor never cease to perfect and govern the vast work of creation, listen to the supplication of your people and grant that all men and women may find work that befits their dignity and joins them more closely to one another and enables them to serve their neighbor…through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.”
And here is a prayer for the pursuit of justice in our country and world:
“O God, who revealed that peacemakers are to be called your children, grant, we pray, that we may work without ceasing to establish that justice which alone ensures true and lasting peace…through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with unity in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.”
Blessings to all of you in the week ahead!
