Today ends the week of prayer for Christian unity--appropriately, today is the feast of the conversion of St. Paul. In a sense we are all converts, because we are all continually returning to the Lord after straying from Him in various ways. Paul's story also reminds us that it is vitally important to seek the Lord's guidance in everything that we do--otherwise, we may find ourselves working against His plan, even with the best of intentions! Today we pray for the humility to accept God's word in our lives--even when it turns our lives upside down!
And we are also praying in a special way today for Sr. Bernadette Marie, who has begun her retreat in preparation for her first profession on February 2. Please keep her in your prayers as well!
