I woke up this beautiful Sunday morning and my heart is over flowing with it.

Thank you Jesus for this hope.

I don't know why either...but I don't care because sometimes hope is far and few in-between these months/years of struggling.

So I'll take it!

Today, as my heart is literally busting with hope, I am grateful to our Lord for blessing me with hope and pray that in moments of darkness I can remember what I'm feeling right now.

"O loving and merciful God, in Blessed Damien you have given us a shining witness of love and care for the poorer, the most abandoned and the forsaken.

Grant that, by his intercession as a faithful witness of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, we too may be a servant of healing and a voice for the voiceless.

We pray, too that through Blessed Damien of Molokai we may be blessed with a miracle in order that he may be numbered with your saints on earth as it is in Heaven.

We ask this in the Holy Name of Jesus, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever.
