In this month’s reflection, presented by Bev, we are reminded that God is constantly at work wherever we are, and in whichever situation we are in. The Holy Spirit is always at the heart of all chaos and order, bringing new life.

Begin with Prayer, then read Psalm 46
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day. Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts. The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.

O Mary my Queen,
I give into your sacred keeping and
commend to your special care and protection
my body, and my soul for this day
and all the days of my life.
To you I commit my hopes and consolations,
my difficulties and sorrows, my life and death,
that through your intercession and your merits
all my actions may be directed
and disposed according to your will
and the will of your Son. Amen.
