TWENTY FOURTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

September 13, 2020

Celebrant: 

Rev. William Corcoran, Pastor


THIS WEEK'S FOCUS:

REFLECTING ON GOD'S ABUNDANCE

God has generously provided for us and continues to shower us with merciful love. We are called to share God's generosity with everyone.



Let us pray:

Holy Spirit, we open our hearts to you. Fill us with your courage to love so that time after time, even when we’ve been hurt, we forgive. We pain you often. You have forgiven us so many times. Don’t let hard-heartedness choke us. We offer you those people and those issues that bother us. Please put them on a log and let them float down your river. Then bubble up with us and restore our joy.

The resentments of earth may pull us down, but the Holy Spirit wants to bubble up and sparkle within you and me. What is blocking us? Where do we find pollution in our lives, the cedar logs of unforgiveness that dam(n) up our souls?
