 Bishop Noonan Calls us to Pray

All life is sacred as each one of us is made in the image and likeness of God.  We cherish each person as a child of God.  We pray for victims of violence and acts of terror...for their families and friends...and all those affected by such acts against God's love. We pray for the people of the city of Orlando that God's mercy and love will be upon us as we seek healing and consolation.  Every time we look at the Cross, we see how God has forgiven us in Christ – with a love that bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things; love never fails. We dry the tears of those who weep and mourn as gently as Veronica wiped the Lord’s bleeding face on the Via Dolorosa. May the Peace of Christ dwell within our hearts.
