14th Sunday of the Year

Christ, Our Peace

Jesus said to his disciples:  “The harvest is rich but the labourers are few, so ask the Lord of the harvest to send labourers into his harvest”. When we think about our world today we are inclined to think primarily of the evil that is undoubtedly there. Jesus’ perception is just the opposite as he sees the wonderful opportunities that are all around us. And when we think of labourers for the harvest we are inclined to think primarily of priests and religious and we pray for more vocations. That, of course, is a very important thing to do. But even more importantly we need to think of ourselves as the labourers and take up the challenge to be apostles of Christ in our everyday lives. We are apostles of Christ through the generosity of our love in marriage and family life and in our willingness to build a community of faith and generosity in our parish. Vocations to the priesthood and religious life can only come from generous homes and generous parishes.

Fr. Johnny Doherty, C.Ss.R.


Morning Prayer, when together

Father, through the obedience of Jesus

your servant and your Son,

you raised a fallen world.

Free us from sin and bring us the joy that lasts forever.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.


During the day, when apart

Lord, may the offering of our married love

bring glory to your name

and bring us closer to eternal life

We ask this through Christ Our Lord.


Evening/Night Prayer together

Lord, may we never fail to praise you

for the fullness of life and salvation you give us

through our love for each other in the sacrament of marriage.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
