REFLECTION: Our reflection this month is from Sister Susan Barber, OSB, from the Give Us This Day post
for April 19, 2022:

Loving God, you revealed yourself to Mary Magdalene. Incline our hearts to the Good News as we pray:
Show us your face, O God.
Enlighten us to recognize your presence in one another and in all creation. 
Show us your face, O God.
Guide those who seek deeper faith, new beginnings, or friendship in Christ.  
Show us your face, O God.

Be with those who grieve the death of loved ones to violence, and thwart the plots of those who seek
destruction.  
Show us your face, O God.
Our Father…. 
May all the earth cry out with joy to the risen Lord, now and always. Amen. 

POPE FRANCIS’ MONTHLY INTENTION: The Holy Father asks that this month we consider the role of
women. He asks that we pray that the dignity and worth of women be recognized in every culture, and
for an end to the discrimination they face in various parts of the world.

Wishing each one of us a blessed Easter season, and a joy-filled Spring!
