Today is the World Day of Prayer, an opportunity for all of us to reach out and pray for our world and each other. According to today's entry in Living Faith, the World Day of Prayer was "initiated in 1927 by a group of Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant women to encourage 'informed prayer and prayerful action' around the globe."
If you have a special intention, you would like others to pray for, I invite you to post it to this blog entry. I would be happy to pray for your intention. In exchange, please pray for my family. My father is currently battling prostate cancer, and while his prognosis thusfar is good, it is still a difficult time for my family and me. Thank you in advance.
Today is also the feast day of St. Katherine Drexel. She was a remarkable woman. Read about her here:
