An Easter Prayer

Right now I’m in a different place, and though we seem apart, I’m closer than I ever was… I’m there inside your heart.

I’m with you when you greet each day, and while the sun shines bring, I’m there to share the sunsets, too.

I’m with you every night. I’m with you when the times are good, to share a laugh or two, and if a ear should start to fall… I’m still be there for you. And when that day arrives, that we no longer are apart, I’ll smile and hold you close to me…Forever in my heart

Blessings of the Easter Season, Mary Ann Gricar

Vocation Corner

by Fr Kyle Manno

As human beings we are men and women of habit. We get up and have the same morning routine every single day. When we go to the store we must likely park in the same area of the parking lot that we always park in. When we go to our favorite restaurant we probably get the same meal each time.

This is not because we are boring but because we love what we know and God made us to be creatures of habit. Since we are indeed human being of habit then the best way to grow in our prayer life is to make it habitual. So the question today is, ‘Where is your habit of prayer in your daily life?’ Now to make the question more specific, ‘Do you pray at least 15 minutes every single day?’

If not then let’s start with a plan and if so, then bump it up to 20 or 25 minutes a day!

The best thing to do to establish a prayer routine is to start small and be consistent. Put 5 minutes of prayer somewhere in your normal daily routine. Maybe right after you brush your teeth sit down and pray for those 5 minutes. Then do that every day. After a month it will just be a normal daily habit to brush and then pray! After a few weeks make that 5 minutes 10, a few weeks later 15 and there it is! After a month or so you have obtained your habit of 15 minutes of prayer!

Start today and become a person of prayer!
