Daily Reflection (6-17-18): “For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that he may grant you in accord with the riches of his glory to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inner self, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the holy ones what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.” [Ephesians 3:14-19] The scripture passage is long today, but speaks to the unconditional love of God, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We manifest this love in our circles of family and friends, but can’t even come close to the degree of love that God has for us. Today, as we celebrate fathers, we are blessed to have the earthly love of our fathers, to give us a glimpse of the heavenly Love of God the Father. God, my heavenly Father, thank You for Your unconditional love and may our earthly fathers be blessed on this special day to honor them.
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. Mary, Queen of the Apostles, and Patroness of our Diocese, pray for us.
