He Began To Send Them Out~Mark 6:7~13

Sketch by: Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld

O Jesus, our Head, grant unto all members of your Mystical Body an understanding of the apostolicity of the Church, so that they may firmly resolve to participate in her apostolic mission. Make them understand that it is you who create the apostolicity of your Church...Your chosen ones tremble at the realization of their own personal powerlessness, but they courageously place all the supernatural confidence of their souls in this, your tremendous promise. Grant, O Lord, that your faithful may know the full meaning of all this.
~Archbishop Emile Maurice Guerry

Have A Blessed Sunday!

Closing Prayer

Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King

My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.

Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
