Prayer of the day

Let me prefer your presence, O God, to all other company. Let me exalt your name above all others names, and let me love your will beyond all other desires; for the sake of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Thérèse of Lisieux (1873-1897)


The field looks hard and bare, but even now the seed grows beneath the ground.
The land is parched and barren, but even now a cloud makes its way over the horizon.
The tomb is sealed, but even now new life is breaking the bonds of death.
Lord of creation and resurrection, you
   bring life where there was none,
   turn the desert into a garden and overwhelm death,
   bring food to the hungry,
      water to the thirsty,
         peace to the troubled
   and joy to the hearts of men, women and children throughout the earth.
May the heavens burst forth in praise of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.

Peter Hancock, Northampton District Chair
