Daily Reflection: “Do not reprove the arrogant, lest they hate you; reprove the wise, and they will love you. Instruct the wise, and they become still wiser; teach the just, and they advance in learning.” [Proverbs 9:8-9] “You can’t handle the truth!” This famous line delivered so passionately by Jack Nicholson in “A Few Good Men” speaks volumes. Some people just don’t want to be reminded of their sin or their faults, and get angry when reminded. We should all take simple reminders and constructive criticism to heart and keep learning from our failings; we are all human and destined to make mistakes. The key is that we learn from our failings, and try not to repeat them. Lord God, help me learn from my mistakes and give me the strength to avoid sin, which draws me away from You. Bless me with the mind and heart to accept help and suggestions from others, especially those in my spiritual community.

REMINDER:  Effective Tuesday, August 1, we will no longer have the 7:30 am Daily Mass. We will continue to have the 7:30 am Mass on Sunday morning.

God our Father, Creator of the Universe and Lord over all creation, we humbly stand before you as your children in thanksgiving for your loving care and protection. We ask that you keep us safe from all hurricanes which may threaten us in the coming seasons. Protect us from all fear and anxiety of storms and give us an ardent trust and hope in your love and mercy. You alone have the power to command the sea, the wind and the rain. You alone bring peace, calm and safety. Father, we thank you in advance, for you are our only refuge. We ask this through Christ Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
