The Epiphany of the Lord

I am for all peoples and nations!

Join Dina Marie Hale on this weekly broadcast as she reflects upon the readings for Epiphany. The readings for the Mass are from Isaiah, Ephesians, Psalm 72 and the Gospel of Matthew. We read about the prophecy of the rise of the King in Jerusalem and Saint Paul explains how the Grace of God is for Gentiles and Jews alike. Matthew is the only Gospel account that mentions the journey of the Magi to the Christ Child. Join us for this reflection with Dina Marie.

Prayers for the New Year

The new year, like a newborn child, is placed in our hands as the old year passes away. The days and weeks to come are God’s gift; they carry God’s blessing. As a blessing we welcome them. Our hope for the year ending is that all that was good in it remain with us and all that was harmful be left behind. 

Bless us, O Lord;

and bless the time and seasons yet to come.

Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain wisdom of heart.

And fill this new year with your kindness, that we may be glad and rejoice all the days of our life.
