CWL Prayer for Renewal
God of new beginnings, ever faithful God,
we thank You for your constant care for
the women of The Catholic Women’s League of Canada.
We have sought to serve You in faith by service to your people.
Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and with the help of Our Lady of Good Counsel,
we continue to discern Your call to seek justice
and build Your Kingdom on earth each day.
We ask your guidance as we plan the evolution of
The Catholic Women’s League of Canada.
Grant us wisdom, the grace of discernment, and strength.
May each of us open her heart and mind to Your will and welcome the new life You bring to the League.
We ask this through Jesus, Your beloved Son and Our Lord, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, God forever and ever.
– Sr. Susan Scott, CAF
A Talk with God
I talked to God today. He didn’t rush past me on the way to work or school.
I talked to God today. He didn’t mumble, “Un-huh” as He flipped through the television channels or the newspaper.
I talked to God today. He didn’t cut me off and say, “But wait until you hear about my problems.”
I talked to God today. He didn’t look over my shoulder trying to find someone more important or interesting to talk to.
I talked to God today.
And though I couldn’t see Him with my eyes, my mind could see the caring look on His face.
Though I couldn’t feel Him with my hands, my heart could feel His comforting arms around me.
Though I couldn’t hear Him with my ears, I clearly heard His voice saying, “I’m glad we were able to talk today. Please come back and talk to me tomorrow.”
