Oh God, Help Our World

October 11, 2019

Today is the feast day of one of the greatest modern day popes: Saint Pope John the XXIII. It just happens that he was pope when I received my first communion and confirmation.

Almighty and eternal God who in the Pope, Saint John XXIII gave to the whole world the shining example of a good shepherd, through his intercession, we may with joy spread abroad the fullness of Christian charity. Amen.

Nowadays, I am fortunate to have my friend Msrg. Father John Coleman nearby to offer me guidance. Father John will turn 94 years-old this coming January.
