As parishioners of
St. Christopher, we are a
caring faith community.
May we pray
for each other's intentions,
for we know His promise:
"Where two or three
are gathered together
in My name,
there am I
in the midst of them.”
Matthew 18:20
"Because He turned His ear to me, I will call on Him as long as I live."  Psalm 116:2
On Prayer:

Soul of Christ, sanctify me.
Body of Christ, save me.
Blood of Christ, inebriate me.
Water from the side of Christ,
wash me.
Passion of Christ, strengthen me.
O good Jesus, hear me.
Within Your wounds, hide me.
Permit me not to be separated
from You.
From the malignant enemy,
defend me.
At the hour of my death, call me
and bid me come to You
That with your saints I may praise
You forever and ever.  Amen.

O Jesus through the
Immaculate  Heart of Mary,
I offer You my prayers,
works, joys, and sufferings of
this day for all the intentions
of Your Sacred Heart,
in union with the
Holy Sacrifice of the Mass
offered throughout the world,
in reparation for my sins,
for the intentions of all my
relatives and friends, and
also for the intentions of the
Holy Father.
Never doubt what one prayer can do!

Morning Offering
Anima Christi

Let nothing disturb you.
Let nothing frighten you.
All things are passing away:
God never changes.
Patience obtains all things.
Whoever has God lacks nothing;
God alone suffices.

For Keith Buhler, who is being treated at M.D. Anderson.  Please pray for healing and for his family.
For healing for Kyle Patin.
For family healing and unity, for all who are separated to be reunited, for all who are at odds to find common ground and            
forgiveness, with God's grace.
For my brother-in-law, Marc Garcia's cancer to be healed with God's grace.
For Tracy and Carol's health, that they will be helped to feel better.  Lord, please guide the doctors in devising a treatment plan for
their care and give them strength and healing, in Jesus' name.
Please pray for Linda, that she may have peace of mind and that God will lift her spirits and bring her through this difficult time and
problems with family.  Assure her of Your love for her, Lord, and help her to trust in Your mercy and goodness.
O Lord, I thank You for the gift of
my children.  I know that they are
not really mine, but Yours, given
to me in trust.  Protect them, Lord,
I pray, from all that is evil.  Help
them to see the truth and beauty
of all that is good.  Help them to
see it first of all in me, and in my
spouse, in the way we live.  Guide
them each to the vocation You
have chosen for them.  Lord, by
Your grace, may I be a good
parent to these children.  Help me
to fulfill my mission, to "train
them in the way that they should
go" (Proverbs 22:6).  Help me to
reflect the wisdom and mercy that
is Yours as heavenly Father.  But
may I also be unafraid to
challenge and discipline them
when necessary.  Above all, may
my children never doubt how
precious they are to me, how
deeply they are loved.  Amen.
