Thoughts on a Prayerful Weekend


Today is marks the start of the weekend.  It’s time to let yourself relax.  Today is the First Friday of the month.  The First Friday of the month honors the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  If you attended Mass today, you probably heard the priest speak about First Friday.  Today is also the feast day of St. Joseph the patron saint of workers.  Wednesday is the day dedicated to St. Joseph as the earthly father of Jesus.  If you didn’t get a chance to attend Mass today, hopefully, tomorrow, on the first Saturday of the month which honors the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  The lines for confession will be long tomorrow.

What time is Mass and confession at your church tomorrow?  You might want to look it up so that you won’t forget, especially, the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

If you haven’t been able to pray today, you might want to pick up that Rosary, and, hopefully, say the Rosary with your family.

Teach the little ones with love, and they will remember the Rosary forever.

May is the month dedicated to the honor of Mary.

There will be May crownings and Rosaries said in churches around the world.

What a beautiful way to honor the

Mother of God.

Because she said, “Yes,” to the angel, Jesus became a man in her womb.

She didn’t reject Him.

She didn’t say, “It’s my choice,” but it really was her choice, and she chose life for her Son.

Mary, our Mother, pray for us who have recourse to you.

Spring is the time of new birth.

All is new.

You can be made new, too.

Even if you haven’t prayed in years,

it’s time to begin again.

Even if you haven’t read the Bible since you can’t remember when,

you have the chance now to begin again.

If you don’t own a Rosary, use your fingers to pray.

Here’s a link to help you remember how to say the Rosary.


Even if you haven’t been to Mass in ages,

you can still attend Mass on Sunday or Saturday evening.

Why don’t you check the listings now at your church?

You’ll be able to make plans to go.

If you feel you don’t have the time to pray, whisper the name of


with love and reverence.

Ask Him to help you make time to be with Him.

He wants you to talk with Him.

He is waiting for you.

Kick off your shoes.


“Jesus, in my heart, I trust in You!”
