Fr. Bob’s Spiritual Reflection – 06/08/2015

It’s just such an easy thing to do and HE likes to listen to us, and what is important to us is important to Him. So say a little prayer to Him.

    “I SAID A LITTLE PRAYER FOR YOU TODAY”

    I can’t think of a nicer thing to say to someone, especially when important things happen.

    Last Saturday I concelebrated the funeral mass for the Vice President’s son Beau. The President’s eulogy was so meaningful and I didn’t watch him, because I couldn’t take my eyes off Beau’s two small children, Natalie and Hunter. Beau was 46, so daddy’s death to children of 11 and 9 is not easy. I watched them and I said a little prayer for them.

    Waiting in the airport to fly home, I watched the family of Bob Baffert, the trainer of the horse that won the Triple Crown on Saturday, celebrating with his family and friends. He has become a friend of my brother and me and has been good to us, so I said a little prayer for him before the race.

    Finally, I got on the plane and was able to watch our Blackhawks playing the Lightning in the Stanley Cup hockey game. I DIDN’T say a little prayer for them, because I just figured I needed to say a little prayer for all the intentions of the friends of the Vincentian Parish Mission, especially for those who are traveling with us to Rome this Friday.

    So you were special on Saturday, so I said a little prayer for you.

    It’s just such an easy thing to do and HE likes to listen to us, and what is important to us is important to Him. So say a little prayer to Him.
