View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Papal Prayer Intentions for September

The Vatican reports that in September Pope Benedict XVI will be praying particularly for the evangelization of the Word of God.

The Apostleship of Prayer announced that the Pope has chosen as his general intention, "That the word of God may be better known, welcomed and lived as the source of freedom and joy."

Pope Benedict has chosen as his apostolic intention for September, "That Christians in Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar, who often meet with great difficulties, may not be discouraged from announcing the Gospel to their brothers, trusting in the strength of the Holy Spirit."

I know I for one could spend more time with Scripture, exploring its richness and beauty.

And I will also try to remember the suffering Christians of Southeast Asia who face so much persecution.
