It is a time to pray, pray, pray, as our dear Holy Mother asks, that our country may grow in knowledge of the great gift of life that God bestows on each of us. This gift of life we have is precious. Whatever the circumstance, we are here because we have a purpose, a vocation to bring God’s love into the world for others. Each one of us is a beautiful creation. May we always give Him thanks and praise, for life, for love.
