St Ignatius of Antioch

Ephesians 1:15-23. You gave your Son authority over all your creation – Psalm 8:2-7. Luke 12:8-12.

Paul’s prayer for the enlightenment of the faithful

What a beautiful and powerful prayer for us, for the community, from Paul. He thanks God for us and prays for the spirit of wisdom and perception in grasping how Jesus can be revealed to us. Over time this year I have had the privilege of walking with two families, one family whose little girl lived with cancer before God’s Angels took her to heaven, and the other family for whom mum is living with cancer also.

In both families God’s love has been experienced through prayer. Sofia was able to name each of her 73 angels and her family fully believe she is safe and happy with Jesus and God in heaven. I pray the Rosary weekly with the youngest daughter, who always dedicates her prayers to her mum. I have borne witness to the reassurance of God’s presence that prayer has revealed. Amen.
