Day 208: Completing the Earthly Pilgrimage (1520-1525)

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father in Heaven, thank you for this moment. Thank you for this day. We know that so many of our brothers and sisters who are part of this podcast, they, on this day, are experiencing a great trial. They are experiencing suffering. They are experiencing sickness. Lord, on this day, many of those who are listening to this podcast may themselves be in danger of death at the moment of their deaths or facing death of someone they love. Because of that, we ask you, please, Lord God, be with us not only on our mountaintops, not only in our joys and our victories, be there in our failures, in our falls. Be there in our sufferings and our weakness. Lord God, be there in our sickness and use it. Use our valleys. Use our falls. Use our weakness so that you may be glorified, that you may be known, that you may be loved. And then we can do our small part to carry a particle of your cross, for the salvation of the world. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen”
