Vision Summer 2020

Charity Wisdom

Ordinary Time — September–October 2020

This season brings many challenges: to continue safe practices to slow the coronavirus pandemic, to work for healing of broken persons and structures, to prepare to vote responsibly. We pray for students, teachers and parents, for those who are ill and those suffering economic hardship.

From centuries ago, the words of our saints and models still resound, full of wisdom and insight for today. Saints Elizabeth Ann Seton, Vincent de Paul, and Louise de Marillac invite us to recommit ourselves to see, act and love in Jesus’ name.
