TO THE FAITHFUL WHO ARE WORKING OUT THEIR SALVATION
AT THE SPIRITUAL HOME OF HOLY TRINITY
GLORY TO JESUS CHRIST! GLORY FOREVER!
Dear Spiritual Children,
In these confusing and troubling times the one thing we need to continually hang on to is HOPE!
We can think of HOPE as a CORD ... a cord connecting us to God. This cord helps us hold our head up high, even when multiple trials are buffeting us. God is always with us ... or we could say He is always 'in our midst', we can always reach out at any moment and, so to speak, hold His Hand. But without the CORD OF HOPE, our heads may slump and our feet may shuffle as we journey on the path of life. Hope lifts our perspective from our weary feet to the glorious view we can see from high ground. We should be reminded that the road we are traveling is ultimately the path of Salvation leading to the Kingdom of God. When we focus on our radiant destination the roughness or smoothness of the road becomes much less significant.
So, dear brethren, let us in the midst of the storms of life be aware of the Love of God and Hope of the eternal life...AMEN!
With Love In Christ

ADDITIONAL PRAYER DURING THIS UNCERTAIN TIME
O God Almighty, Lord of heaven and earth, and of all creation visible and invisible, in thine ineffable goodness, look down upon us, thy people gathered in thy Holy Name. Be our helper and defender in this day of affliction. Thou knowest our weakness. Thou hearest our cry in repentance and contrition of heart. O Lord who loves mankind, deliver us from this Corona Virus. Send thine angel to watch over us and protect us. Grant health and recovery to those suffering from this virus. Guide the hands of physicans, protect the caretakers, and preserve those who are healthy. Enable us to continue to serve our suffering brothers and sisters in peace that together we may glorify thy most honorable and majestic name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages.
