July 5 - If you are looking for intentions to add to your prayer lists, let me recommend:
- over July 4th weekend - our country. May we be rooted in justice and thrive in peace, globally and locally.
- after recent Ordinations - for our 3 new priests. Leadership is not easy but especially spiritual guidance of parishes and communities. The new priests have been assigned and will start soon. Fr. Jonathan Kuhar, an ex. lawyer, will go to Scranton; Fr. Kevin Miller, ex. military, will go to Carbondale: and Fr. Shawn Simchock, a former salesman, will serve in Nanticoke.
"Holy Spirit, inspire them. Love of God, consume them. On the true path, lead them. From all evil, from all illusion, from all danger, preserve them".
