Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.
Today we remember the 35th anniversary of the martyrdom of Br. James Miller, FSC.
Aware of the many difficulties and risks that we face in the future, we continue to work with faith and hope and trust in God’s Providence. Please join your prayers with ours every day. Many selfish, blind, and hardened hearts must be converted to the love of Christ before a lasting solution can be found. Armed force will not solve the problems; only dialogue and mutual understanding can be viable solutions.
(excerpts from Br. James Miller’s personal writings)
Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
