Daily Reflection with Fr. Tomas Del Valle-Reyes

Dear Friends: Praying is not easy. Our daily routine calls for our full attention. And the world around us puts little value on prayer; our lives are full of material things but at the same time are getting emptier in God’s value.

For this reason, I will post a daily reflection and as you visit this site may the Holy Spirit within you come to your aid and guide you gently to the God who loves you

Think of all the people
That never got the chance
To say their last good-bye Without a backward glance.
Think of all the people That said, "Have a good day"As they walked out of the door On their very last day.
Think of all the children
That said, "Mom don't be late.
I'll see you when you get home."
And now they sit and wait.

Think of all the lovers Running late and short on time
To give that last kiss and hug, If they'd only had a sign.
Think of all the friends That had a silly fight
Never got to say "I'm sorry," Now will never see the light.
I mourn for all the people
That died without a clue.
I hurt for all the living That sadly never knew.
It'd be their last great hug.
It'd be their last sweet kiss. It'd be their last big smile,
From the ones they'll always miss.
Think of the ones around you,
The ones you loved so strong.
Take time to say, "I'm sorry" To anyone you've wronged.
Don't waste a precious moment
Assuming that they know.
For when these people pass It's too late to tell them so.
Yesterday is already gone
Tomorrow may never be.
Now is all we have To make our loved ones see.
