Wednesday of the Sixth Week of Easter

Liturgical Color – White


Acts 17:15, 22-:18:1 – Psalm 148 – John 16:12-15

Thought of the day

“Divine hope is not like earthly hope. The latter is subject to disappointment, for however strong our security, it can either be realized or not realized. Who is the fortunate person who has seen all his hopes fulfilled in this world? But the theological virtue of hope is not subject to disappointment; it gives us the holy, invincible certainty that we shall obtain what God has promised.”

-Luis M. Martinez, When God is Silent

  Weekly Prayer

O God, you are our Creator. You are good and your mercy knows no bounds. To you arises the praise of every creature. O God, you have given us an inner law by which we must live. To do your will is our task. To follow your ways is to know peace of heart. To you we offer our homage. Guide us on all the paths we travel upon this earth. Free us from all the evil tendencies which lead our hearts away from your will. Never allow us to stray from you. O God, judge of all humankind, help us to be included among your chosen ones on the last day. O God, Author of peace and justice, give us true joy and authentic love, and a lasting solidarity among peoples. Give us your everlasting gifts. Amen.

St. John Paul II
