Christ is in our midst!!

Tomorrow evening I have permission to use my parish church for a Holy Hour from 9 p.mn. to 10 p.m. for a special intention. I am hoping that some of my brothers and sisters here will join me in making an hour holy wherever you are for the same intention. A friend of mine is in need of a kidney transplant and has been waiting for a number of years. I had intended to make this time of concentrated prayer while on my annual retreat this weekend, but it was canceled. I asked to use the parish church so that I could "shut the door" to distractions. Maybe some of you could use your icon corner or some other place.

I will be reading the Gospels--as much as I can read aloud in one hour.

Maybe if "two or three" ask for the same thing--a sudden kidney found--the Good Lord will provide. May His Holy Will be done.

Bob

I will be with you, my friend

Many years,

It's amazing to me how quiet it is in a place where there are no tech distractions. Had a very peaceful Holy Hour last night. Thank God for the three of my brothers who joined me and thank each of you.

Bob
