For the elderly and frail, especially my parents who are trying to remain independent.
For teens and all who suffer from bullying and threats, especially my daughter, that the strength of St Michael be their defense and comfort.

As Pentecost Sunday approaches, please join me in giving thanks to the most Holy Spirit of our Lord for those men and women who have responded, in faith and humility, to “making all things new” by living out a Franciscan charism through the ministries of Mt Irenaeus, through Franciscan Sojourners, or through profession to the Secular Franciscan Order.
“O most blessed Light divine,
May that light within us shine
And our inmost being fill!”
