Belonging entirely - to Jesus...

 For every living soul belongs to me, 
the father as well as the son -
 both alike belong to me.  - Ezekiel 18:4a

"Our Hours of adoration
will be special hours 
of reparation for sins, and intercession 
for the needs of the whole world, 
exposing the sin-sick and suffering humanity 
to the healingsustaining 
and transforming rays of Jesus, 
radiating from the Eucharist."

"By blood, I am Albanian.  
By citizenship, an Indian. 
By faith, I am a Catholic nun.  
As to my calling, I belong to the world.  
As to my heart, I belong entirely 
to the Heart of Jesus."- St  Teresa of Calcutta

St Mother Teresa of Calcutta, pray for us!

First Monday in September

"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!
