The Stoning of Saint Stephen
Weekly Prayer Guide
Week of May 7-13, 2020
As we approach the fifth Sunday in the Easter season, let us join together each day in prayer. As we pray with a meal during each day, let our hearts be made one, let our minds be lifted up, let us know we are never alone. This Sunday’s readings highlight the fullness of the Gospel for life and in death. Stephen is martyred. Jesus assures his disciples they are never alone. And 1 Peter encourages us to the simple and holy joy of being Church. Though we can’t share Eucharist, we can eat eucharistically. Though we cannot share communion, we eat in communal solidarity with one another and a world hungry for God. Sharing a meal in this way, all of us share this life together as a Church called into Christ's love for the world.
We hope this prayer will bless you and by it, know that your church family is near to you, heart and soul.
Blessings on you in this week of prayer.
