Saturday of the 24th Week in Ordinary Time

Today the church celebrates Saturday of the 24th week of ordinary time. Let us pray. God, nurture the seed of compassion, justice, and peace that You have planted within us. May we realize that harvest in our lives, regardless of the smallest of our plants, or the hard terrain of the seasons of our lives. May we find hope in the reign of Your grace and wisdom, and be rooted in the love and care of family and friends, ministers and counselors, teachers and coaches. Amen
