Tuesday, January 25th

 DAY 1

MORNING PRAYER

This week, we are exploring some of the advice Pope Francis has for us. Today, the advice almost sounds funny, but it has a good point to it. Pope Francis’ advice is to finish the food we have at our meals. Pope Francis indicates that sometimes we live in a culture of waste. We throw away so much food that we neglect the fact that there are poor and hungry people around us. 

Loving God,

Forgive us for taking for granted the many gifts you give us. 

Help us to see the food we eat as a blessing from you,

and that we work to reduce wasting of this precious gift. 

Help us to change our ways,

so that we may work to create a world

where everyone has the same access to good food 

in our community and world. 

We ask this through Christ our Lord. 

Amen

 DAY 2

MORNING PRAYER

Pope Francis has been a great influence on our world and for in our Church. His actions demonstrate a great example for our lives. This week, we will explore some of the wisdom that Pope Francis has shared with us. The first piece of advice Pope Francis has for us is to make it a habit of turning to the Lord in prayer. Ask the Lord, the Pope tells us, and He will show you the way. 

Loving God,

We trust in your great mercy.

Help us to see the way you want us to go in life.

Help us to make the right decisions that bring peace and love to our lives and the lives of those around us.

Help us to turn to you first in all the decisions we make.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen
