Verse of the Week:
When Jesus saw the crowds He had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; pray therefore the Lord of harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” Matthew 9: 36-38

Prayer for the Week:
O Christ, serene and tranquil light, shine into the depth of our being, come and draw us to Yourself. Free us from the chatter of our minds, draw us through and beyond all words and symbols into the silence, so that we may discover You, the unspoken Word, the pure Light, piercing and transforming the darkness that veils the ground of our being. Amen
