8th Sunday in Ordinary Time


Fr. Johnny Doherty, C.Ss.R.

2nd  March – 8th Sunday of the Year

 The God who cherishes us

Jesus said to his disciples: “Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself.” That is a saying by Jesus that is hard for us to hear and listen to today. There is so much uncertainty in our world and in our Church that we can easily, and understandably, be preoccupied with what is going to happen in the weeks and months ahead. However it is a saying that we need to listen to very carefully. He is not saying that we should not take ordinary precautions in our lives. What he is saying though is that the health of the future depends greatly on how we live the present. So many securities are fragile today. We need to build up the main securities through our love for one another in marriage, in family and in our faith community. It is only together with those we love and who love us that we can make sure that the future, whatever it holds, will not damage us in any way. It is also through those relationships that we will know that God is with us.

 Morning Prayer, when together

Lord, guide the course of world events

and give us and all your Church the joy and peace

of serving you in freedom

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

During the day, when apart

God our Creator, may our married love,

which we offer you again this week

as a sign of our love and worship

lead us to salvation.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

 Evening/Night Prayer together

God of salvation may our sacrament of marriage

bring us and all those we love to eternal life.

We make our prayer through Christ our Lord.
