When Sir Francis Drake prepared to sail for the New World, part of his prayer went as following: “Where storms show your mastery: where losing sight of land, we shall find the stars and we ask You to push back the horizons or our hopes and to push us into the future, in strength, courage, hope and love.”
Our prayer for you as we wind down another year and get ready for the next, is that the Lord will push you into the future with strength, courage, hope and love. If sickness comes, let God’s healing be with you. If success comes, let your thanksgiving be filled with joy. And when the roof caves in, make sure you’re not in the house. God bless you and know you are remembered at the Vincentian Parish Mission Center.
