Saint Peter Claver, Pray for Us
St. Peter Claver, Slave to the Africans - Word on Fire

Oh God, who made Saint Peter Claver a slave of slaves and strengthened him with wonderful charity and patience as he came to their help, grant, through his intercession, that, seeking the things of Jesus Christ, we may love our neighbor in deeds and in truth. 
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

Prayer for Peace in Ukraine

O Prince of Peace,
Once more we hear the guns of war,
Once more we see the faces
Of frightened children.

We pray for the people of Ukraine,
That they may be granted peace;
We pray for the people of Russia,
That they may demand peace;
We pray for our country,
That we may be a positive part
Of peacemaking in this world.

O Prince of Peace,
Lead us from this dark time
To a deeper understanding
Of the global human family,
So all may break bread together
In the secure embrace of peace.

Amen.

Jane Deren, Ph.D

11 Ways You Can Increase Giving at Your Church

DID YOU KNOW - CHECK FOR SUBSTANCE ABUSE IN CAREGIVERS

Tips For First Timer's in Choosing a Good Babysitter | Kaamwalibais

Did You Know?
Choosing a babysitter for your children is hard, and the prevalence of substance use and abuse makes it even harder. When parents are screening potential babysitters, it is important to check for any warning signs of drug or alcohol use. You may want to seek out references or ask for a background check or licenses. For more tips on choosing the right babysitter, read the VIRTUS® article “Is Your Babysitter or Caregiver Safe?” at lacatholics.org/did-you-know/.

¿Sabia Que?

Comprobar si hay abuso de sustancias en los cuidadores - Elegir una niñera para sus hijos es difícil, y la prevalencia del uso y abuso de sustancias lo hace aún más difícil. Cuando los padres evalúan a posibles niñeras, es importante verificar si hay signos de advertencia de consumo de drogas o alcohol. Es posible que desee buscar referencias o solicitar una verificación de antecedentes o de licencias. Para obtener más consejos sobre cómo elegir la niñera adecuada, lea el artículo en inglés en VIRTUS®, “Is Your Babysitter or Caregiver Safe?” (¿Está segura su niñera o cuidadora?) en lacatholics.org/did-you-know/.

PRAYER IN THE TIME OF THE CORONA VIRUS

Prayer in the Time of the Corona Virus
by Archbishop Gomez​
Our Lady of Guadalupe












Holy Virgin of Guadalupe, Queen of the Angels and Mother of the Americas, we fly to you today as your beloved children. We ask you to intercede for us with your Son, as you did at the wedding in Cana.
Pray for us, loving Mother, and gain for our nation and world, and for all our families and loved ones, the protection of your holy angels, that we may be spared the worst of this illness. For those already afflicted, we ask you to obtain the grace of healing and deliverance.
Hear the cries of those who are vulnerable and fearful, wipe away their tears and help them to trust. In this time of trial and testing, teach all of us in the Church to love one another and to be patient and kind. Help us to bring the peace of Jesus to our land and to our hearts. We come to you with confidence, knowing that you truly are our compassionate mother, health of the sick and cause of our joy. Shelter us under the mantle of your protection, keep us in the embrace of your arms, help us always to know the love of your Son, Jesus.
Amen.

LET US TAKE A MOMENT TO REFLECT ON THIS COMING WEEKEND'S READINGS

July 3, 2022
Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

When you see this, your heart shall rejoice and your bodies flourish like the grass; the LORD's power shall be known to his servants.
Isaiah 66:14c

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers and sisters. Amen.
Galatians 6:18

At that time the Lord appointed seventy-two others whom he sent ahead of him in pairs
to every town and place he intended to visit.
He said to them,
"The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest
to send out laborers for his harvest."
Luke 10:1-2

How We Go: Great Need, Great Urgency, & Great Hope (Luke 10:1-20)
