Lord be with me in my sorrow!


Published on

I LOVE this Sunday's readings. - I don't know what it is with Mass readings BUT each Sunday they seem to be just PERFECT in the message they give. I pray that all of those who are going through hard times may see that Christ is indeed with us. May the Peace of Jesus reign always in our hearts - but more especially in the hearts of those who are troubled or hurt.
