Good Advice
Worry and regret can be useless and harmful
O My God,
When I look into the future, I am frightened,
But why plunge into the future?
Only the present moment is precious to me,
As the future may never enter my soul at all.

It is no longer in my power,
To change, correct or add to the past;
For neither sages nor prophets could do that.
And so, what the past has embraced I must entrust to God.

O present moment, you belong to me, whole and entire,
I desire to use you as best I can.
And although I am weak and small,
You grant me the grace of Your omnipotence.

And so, trusting in Your mercy,
I walk through life like a little child,
Offering You each day this heart
Burning with love for Your greater glory.

An Update on Maria Felicitas
Maria Felicitas would like to thank everyone for their prayers on her behalf. Currently she is staying at home and has made the decision to not pursue further medical treatment.

We ask that you continue to keep Maria and the whole Community in your prayers.

Jesus, we trust in You.
Make Straight the Way of the Lord...
...We are trying. With the help of a generous donor and a break in the weather, the big machines arrived at the Mission this
week to chip-seal the surface of the roads and help prevent the persistent problem of washout. It's a big deal!

Schedule Changes at the Mission
Due to the new commitments that the Mission has on
Fridays and Saturdays at St. Thomas, and to the
increasing responsibilities with regard to Maria Felicitas’ care, we are temporarily suspending
Friday adoration between 11 AM through 3 PM,
and the Saturday evening 7 PM Holy Hour.

However, the Community's Friday afternoon Holy Hour
from 3-4 PM will continue. The Holy Hour begins with the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, followed by a period of quiet adoration and concludes with a
Eucharistic Blessing by Fr. John Mary.
Everyone is welcome to join us.

God bless all of you who come to adore the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament!
for Fr. John Mary

In response to requests that we make giving to the Mission easier for people who don't carry cash, we have initiated a new credit card kiosk. It is located at the foot of road to the Chapel.
All donations, large or small are appreciated and put to immediate good use!

The Mission depends entirely on donations in order to carry out our ministry. We do not receive financial support from the Archdiocese.
Please pray to see if God wants you to help support His Mission of Divine Mercy.
