Fr Philip’s reflection

Remain in me as I remain in you.
The branches move and live and have their being in the vine. The prayer of the spindly branches is one with the prayer of the anchor vine, Jesus. God our Father listens to the beseeching of the vine.
Lord, you tell us to ask for whatever we want and it will be done for us.
We want: no greed, no hunger, no violence, no prejudice, no pandemics, no global warming, no suffering
children, no suffering immigrants. We want to learn to love.
Father, please hear our prayers.
