June 2015

Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.

Lord, help me to rest awhile in the cooling shade of your presence. Slow down my restless heart and fill me with gentle compassion for all your people. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us. Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
