Audio - Holy Family 2007
Thank you Father Ray! Especially coming through New Year's day with illness and the stress that this caused my family -- when Mom is sick...and you know the rest.
A thank you to my husband for through my illness and trying to watch his games he took care of our family's New Year's Dinner.
YOU GOTTA LISTEN! AND TURN IT ALL OVER TO HIM!
JESUS I TRUST IN YOU!
My New Year's Resolution....TRUST & FAITH---gotta work at it minute by minute...and only by and through HIS GRACE! Thank YOU GOD!
And as Fr. ends his homily with this prayer (paraphrased from the "Magnifcat"):
“Eternal Father, we want to live as Jesus, Mary and Joseph, who avoided most of the avoidable stresses of this life, and thus lived in peace with you and with one other. Help us to follow their example. And may the Eucharist we receive at this Mass strengthen us so that we can face all the troubles of life—especially those difficult and stressful situations that we cannot escape, no matter how hard we try. This we ask through Christ our Lord. Amen.”
