Today Father Jerry describes each one of us as the “Gospel Widow” in our midst, highlighting our individual, unique struggles and efforts to overcome challenges. With which of his examples do you most accurately identify? OR, in what way can you help someone else who matches his descriptions?
Lord, open our hearts to hear You in the cries of the widows in our families, parish and communities. Give us the patience and generosity to help them in their struggle to secure justice, dignity, and peace. And in doing so, may we realize that our work for them is our best offering of thanks to You for all that You have given us. Amen
