Speak Lord: Through Michael, through us…

Coventry, MichaelThe first reading at Mass today, the 33rd Sunday of Ordinary Time, reminds of the protection of God, through the ministry of Michael the Archangel.

‘At that time Michael will stand up, the great prince who mounts guard over your people. There is going to be a time of great distress, unparalleled since nations first came into existence. When that time comes, your own people will be spared, all those whose names are found written in the Book. Of those who lie sleeping in the dust of the earth many will awake, some to everlasting life, some to shame and everlasting disgrace. The learned will shine as brightly as the vault of heaven, and those who have instructed many in virtue, as bright as stars for all eternity.’

Daniel 12:1-3

In your prayers today invoke Michael as Protector, as servant of God, for the people of Paris and France, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan… the list is almost endless. How much the world needs our prayer and our working together as citizens, (and, as many of us will see it, as children of God) that God’s will be done.
