8th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Change my heart, O Lord!

Join Dina Marie Hale on this weekly broadcast as she reflects upon the readings for the 8th Sunday in Ordinary Time. The readings for the Mass are from Sirach, Psalm 92, I Corinthians and the Gospel of Luke. Today Jesus offers his disciples additional firmness in how they are to live their lives, in order to bear good fruit. We too, are called to this way of life. Now, join us for this reflection with Dina Marie.

Prayer for Peace of Mind

O holy St. Anthony, your deep faith in Jesus Christ comforted your heart, especially during times of trial and distress. Help me grow in faith, so I may experience peace of mind and heart in my present needs. (mention your needs here)

Free me from undue anxiety, needless worry, and burdensome fears. Grant me sure confidence, unfailing trust in God’s loving mercy and daily serenity. Amen.

Serenity Prayer

Lord God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference.
