An appointment was scheduled for our Year of Mercy visit today
A church designated for the Jubilee Year of Mercy
A date I make each month
Determined not to let the Jubilee Year of Mercy slip by
Too good an opportunity to miss
Too much in sore need of merits and indulgences
Evidently only sinners find great solace in this search
for the mercy of God to be poured out upon us
Time was on my hands and I had the chance to read a good book
By the intercessor Jack Hayford, long known to me
One wise pastor who is most encouraging.
So it was with gratitude and joy that we took the challenge
To pray for the living and the dead
One cannot ignore the call to pray out of love
Especially for our priests who labour long and hard to give us Jesus
And so this is what we did this morning
Eight of us including a young lad of twelve prayed
For an hour after Mass and all went smoothly
For our priests, religious, seminarians, novices and postulants
For our personal intentions, our loved ones, those who have need of our prayers
For those who are sick, suffering and certainly, for the dying
For the souls of the faithful departed and more. . .
For our Holy Father, our Bishops and all clergy and more. . .
God knows our needs and He hears our prayers. Praise God!
