Hot Off the Pres! | Volume 13

One day, all the villagers decided to pray for rain. On the day of prayer all the people gathered, but only one boy came with an umbrella.

That's FAITH.

When you throw babies in the air, they laugh because they know
you will catch them.

That's TRUST.

Every night we go to bed without
any assurance of being alive
the next morning, But still we
set the alarms to wake up.

That's HOPE.
We plan big things for tomorrow in spite
of zero knowledge of the future.


We see the world suffering, but still we get married and have children.

That's LOVE.
On an old man's shirt was written a sentence.
"I am not 80 years old, I am sweet 16
with 64 years of experience."

All-knowing God, today we remember and pray for our loved ones who died in the service of our country, defending your gifts of liberty and justice for all. Grant us all your eternal gifts of peace and the true freedom of being your children in faith. Give us the guidance and life of your Spirit, who lives and reigns with you and your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

Rev. Brad Metz, C.S.C.
