Healing rays of the Sun of Justice...

The Church and the world have a great need for Eucharistic worship.
Jesus awaits us in this sacrament of love. 
Let us not refuse the time to go to meet Him in adoration,
in contemplation full of faith, and open to making amends
for the serious offenses and crimes of the world.
Let our adoration never cease." - Pope St JPII, Dominicae Cenae

College of St Benedict, St Joseph, MN

"I believe that today we are entering
into the reign of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus. 
In the midst of the winter in the world 
and even in the Church today innumerable little shoots
are sprouting up through the snow. 

These shoots are chapels of
Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration
growing up around the world. 
...I encourage you to soak up the healing rays of the Sun of Justice
and do all you can to promote Perpetual Adoration."

Rev. Harold F. Cohen, SJ (+2001)

"Work is not only good in the sense that it is useful or something to enjoy; it is also good as being something worthy, that is to say, something that corresponds to man's dignity, that expresses this dignity and increases it. ... Work is a good thing for man - a good thing for his humanity  - because through work man not only transforms nature, adapting it to his own needs, but he also achieves fulfillment as a human being and indeed in a sense becomes 'more a human being.'" ~ St JP II, Laborem Exercens #9

Most merciful Father, thank you for this day of work with all its achievements as well as its  burdens.  Thank you for all the successes, the challenges, and even the difficulties that it brought to me.  Your Son once said to His Apostles, "Come by yourselves to an out-of-the-way place and rest a little." Thank you for this gift of rest.  May this time be a chance for me to renew my gratitude for all your blessings.  In your great compassion and generosity, please be mindful of those who are out of work.  And help me to do a better job tomorrow.  I ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

 St Joseph, patron of the Worker, pray for us!
