The prayer chain is a way for people to gain assistance in prayer for serious problems. Most prayer chains are for a continuous 24 hour period. Your commitment (from the comfort of your own home) would be one hour of dedicated time spent in prayerful meditation in any form from saying the rosary to reading the bible to formal prayers, to singing – whatever way that you can honor God.
The prayer chain at St. Clare’s is currently looking for more parishioners – especially people that can commit to the hours from midnight to 6:00 a.m. Prayer is a way for each of us to reach out of ourselves for the sake of another – to act on God’s command to love one another. Please think about joining. Contact Rozalia at 604-944-1554.
I am the living bread that came down out of heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread also which I will give for the life of the world is My flesh.
More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ
Then the Jews began to argue with one another, saying, “How can this man give us His flesh to eat?”
So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves.
