The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me; he has sent me to bring glad tidings to the poor, to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and release to the prisoners, to announce a year of favor from the LORD and a day of vindication by our God. --Isaiah 61:1-2
Within Our Darkest Night You Kindle a Fire that Never Dies Away
Have a blessed Advent.
Stewardship at St. Robert's
Good and gracious Father, Creator of all that is good, true, and beautiful, You watch over us with loving and merciful care. You have given life itself to us, your children. In Your boundless and exuberant love for your creation, You have given us a share in Your love, That we may humbly share it with others.
Remind us always, to linger Near the heart of Your Son, Jesus, That His love may dwell abundantly within us, And that it may overflow to those around us. And in a special way, as stewards of Your gifts, May the light of Your Face radiate through us To all our brothers and sisters within the parish.
Father, we beg of You the grace To be of humble and self-less service To the good people of St. Robert Bellarmine Parish. May your blessings abound richly in us all, And may the kingdom and person of your Son, Be lifted up and proclaimed, To Your glory now and for endless ages.
We offer our deepest gratitude for your Presence And for the opportunity You have given us To serve others in the parish, We pray this in the holy name of Christ, Jesus, And in the efficacious power of the Holy Spirit, Amen, Amen.
