Day 252: The Common Good (1905-1912)

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father in Heaven, oh God in Heaven, you are good. You have made us in your image and likeness. You have called us to be brothers and sisters. You made us into a family through Baptism. And we also belong to the human family just by the very fact that we share our human nature. We share that image that you have created us in. Lod God, we ask that you please help us to always remember and recognize and affirm the dignity of the individual. Help us also to be wise in making decisions about the common good, decisions about the group of individuals. Help us to never lose sight of either the individual good or the common good. Help us walk that tightrope. Help us live that balance. Help us to assert all that is good in this world. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen”
