I leave in the morning for Cincinnati. Prayers appreciated for the Retrouvaille community there. Members of the International Board are attending their community meeting.

It is Retrouvaille time again. I believe this is the eighth weekend I have done since the first of the year. I will be on the Retrouvaille Weekend in Houston.

Please pray for the couples seeking healing in their marriages this weekend. The program will be presented in the following cities this weekend:

Ft. Worth Wichita Kansas City Houston

God, our Father,

Each Friday we recall the day when your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, suffered his passion and death for us, your sons and daughters. We gather today on this Friday as Retrouvaille weekends are beginning, seeking to assist couples who are suffering serious conflict.

Look down on your people in their moments of need, for you alone are the source of peace. Your Son suffered and died for them. Please see in their faces the pain of your Son. .As you strengthened him, so help them to work through their pain by trusting that you, Heavenly Father, will enable them to accept their pain and work toward their reconciliation, so that their Friday will be followed by a Sunday of hope leading to final victory.

Please use the teams as your instruments to bring about your holy will, through the guidance and strength of the Holy Spirit. The love you offer always exceeds the furthest expression of our human longing, for you are greater than the human heart. Direct each thought, each effort of this weekend, so that the limits of our faults and weaknesses may not obscure the vision of your glory or keep us from the peace you have promised.

We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

St. Joseph, Pray for us!
