DIOCESE OF AUSTIN CATHOLIC YOUTH CONFERENCE
Please pray for our 22 Youth Ministry members and chaperones who left today to attend the DCYC Youth Conference in Waco for the next 3 days:
God, We ask You to prepare our youth to receive everything You have in store for them at the conference. We want Your Word of grace and truth to really effectively work in them and build them up to be leaders You've called them to be. We pray for the success of DCYC- for its speakers, that they be inspired by the Holy Spirit,-for its benefactors and their families- for all who make it possible,-for all who attend that You touch each one in Your most loving, needful way. Please begin to soften their hearts and stir up their expectations in faith for a life-changing weekend.. We pray this in Jesus name. Amen.

We pray that parishes, placing communion at the center, may increasingly become communities of faith, fraternity and welcome towards those most in need.
Oramos para que las parroquias, poniendo la comunión en el centro, se conviertan cada vez más en comunidades de fe, fraternidad y acogida hacia los más necesitados.
My generous Lord, You gave of Yourself without reserve. People came to You in their need, and You did not hesitate to serve them out of love. Give me a heart that imitates Your generosity and help me to always say “Yes” to the charitable work to which I am called. May I learn to find great joy in serving others, especially in those unplanned and unexpected circumstances of life. Jesus, I trust in You.
Mi generoso Señor, te entregaste sin reservas. La gente acudía a Ti en su necesidad, y Tú no dudabas en servirles por amor. Dame un corazón que imite Tu generosidad y ayúdame a decir siempre “Sí” a la obra de caridad a la que estoy llamado. Que aprenda a encontrar una gran alegría en servir a los demás, especialmente en esas circunstancias no planificadas e inesperadas de la vida. Jesús, en Ti confío.

Today in Ordinary Time...
Liturgy of the Hours-"Praying the Breviary"
"Seven times a day I praise you, because your judgments are righteous." PS 119:164
“From ancient times the Church has had the custom of celebrating each day the liturgy of the hours. In this way the Church fulfills the Lord’s precept to pray without ceasing, at once offering its praise to God the Father and interceding for the salvation of the world.”
