Joachim and Anna, Parents of Mary

Feast of Joachim and Anna - Joachim and Anna are the grandparents of Jesus and parents of Mary. Their Feast Day reminds us to pray for all grandparents living and deceased, who have touched our lives by their goodness and example.

Recently in Rio, Pope Francis has been encouraging all peoples to reverence the young and the old in our cultures. Many are forgotten, ignored and suffer from isolation or loneliness.

Let us pray daily for all those who are suffering, abandoned, isolated, maginalized or forgotten. Let us show we care by our prayers and concern.

Holy Family of Mary pray for us and all those in most need. Help us to see the young and the old alike as the face of God among us. Amen

World Youth Day 2013

Rio De Janeiro, Brazil - The 13th global World Youth Day is underway in Rio de Janeiro. Let us pray for Pope Francis and all those who gather there in search of a renewed faith, inspiring hope and charity for all peoples and nations.

Pope Francis is expected to continue to share his openeness and love for all people. His first encyclical "Lumen Fides" released earlier this month celebrates Christian faith as the guiding light of a "sucessful and fruitful life, inspiring social action as well as devotion to God, and illuminating every aspect of human existence, including philosophy and the natural sciences. His writings and witness encourage a zeal and respect for all life and love for all peoples and nations.

Lord, bless those who gather for World Youth Day. Keep them safe and by your Holy Spirit increase their faith, hope and love as they gather to praise and glorify your name. May all that is done give you honor and glory. Amen

Endangered Species of North America

United States and North America - In researching the endangered species of North America we were shocked to find out the wide spread crisis facing our planet. If the wild-life that are endangered are any indicator of the scope and health of our planet, mankind is the most endangered specie of all.

At this writing an unofficial count of North American endangered species includes 2269 life forms including plants, animals, insects, birds and water based creatures which are on our environmental watch list. A worldwide search by continent reveals many more of God's creatures, which need our prayers. If we add all the women and children suffering from abuse, malnutrition, war and lack of human rights, the count is staggerings.

Lord, we thank you for planet earth and all that you have created. Help us to be good stewards and protect our environment by encouraging public awareness starting in our homes, our country and our world. Help us to be respectful of all life forms and inspire us to contribute to the well-being of our planet by responsible stewardship. Increase our awareness of the many gifts you have given us. May gratitude be our constant prayer and eternal respect be our constant guide.

Lord, we are here on earth for such a short time. May we leave it in better shape than when we found it. Continue to bless us so we may be a blessing for others. With profound gratitude we pray: "The Laudes Creaturarum" (Praise of the Creatures) by Saint Francis

"Most high, all powerful, all good Lord!
All praise is Yours, all glory, all honor, and all blessing.

To You, alone, Most High, do they belong.
No mortal lips are worthy to pronounce Your name.

Be praised, my Lord, through all Your creatures, especially through my lord Brother Sun, who brings the day; and You give light through him. And he is beautiful and radiant in all his splendor! Of You, Most High, he bears the likeness.

Be praised, my Lord, through Sister Moon and the stars; in the heavens You have made them bright, precious and beautiful.

Be praised, my Lord, through Brothers Wind and Air, and clouds and storms, and all the weather, through which You give Your creatures sustenance.

Be praised, my Lord, through Sister Water;
she is very useful, and humble, and precious, and pure.

Be praised, my Lord, through Brother Fire,
through whom You brighten the night.
He is beautiful and cheerful, and powerful and strong.

Be praised, my Lord, through our sister Mother Earth, who feeds us and rules us, and produces various fruits with colored flowers and herbs.

Be praised, my Lord, through those who forgive for love of You; through those who endure sickness and trial.

Happy those who endure in peace, for by You, Most High, they will be crowned.

Be praised, my Lord, through our sister Bodily Death, from whose embrace no living person can escape.Woe to those who die in mortal sin!
Happy those she finds doing Your most holy will. The second death can do no harm to them.

Praise and bless my Lord, and give thanks,
and serve Him with great humility."

19 Prescott Granite Mountain Firefighters

Yarnell, AZ - Let us pray for the nineteen members of an elite firefighting crew that died on Sunday while fighting a blaze that has burned a 13 square miles area.

The lightning-sparked fire destroyed about 50 homes and threatened 250 others in and around Yarnell, a town of 700 people in the mountains about 85 miles northwest of Phoenix, the Yavapai County Sheriff's Department said. Most people had evacuated from the town, and no injuries or other deaths were reported. More than 400 firefighters are still working to contain the fire.

The fire killed 19 members of the 20-member Prescott Granite Mountain Hotshots crew, which were known for battling the regions worst fires. The average age of the men in the crew was 22-years-old.

Lord, into your hands we entrust those firefighters who have died and all those involved in fighting fires this day. May your divine protection, intervention and deliverance be with them and may the souls of the faithfully departed rest in peace. Amen
