Snowy day

Many in our area will be home tonight waiting for the ice to come-th. I immediately think what a great time to get out of my routine and see what can bring me closer to God. You to can look for a moment that you and your family can take that will be an inspiration and memory full of grace. Say a rosary, talk about your ancestors and say a prayer for them, light a candle in honor of your patron saints, turn out the lights and sing a song softly such as ” Lord prepare me to be a sanctuary, pure and holy, tried and true……. ” God has given you this little blessing of time- make good use of it!

One Our Father, One Hail Mary and One Glory Be. While your at it say a quick thank you to our Lord for our guardian angels!!! September is the month for remembrance of Angels.  Happy Friday!
