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

Where I live in..

This world I live in
this town I live in 
this street I live in
this house I live in
may each be the focus of my prayer
Those I live with
those I rub shoulders with
those I work with
those I don't get on with
may each be the focus of my prayer
Those who laugh those who cry those who hurt
those who hide may each be the focus of my prayer
Prayers centered less on self and more on others
less on my circumstances
more on the needs of others.
May my life be likewise centered
less on self and more on You
and through You to the world
in which I live and move.
Within the circle of my family and friends
May I be a source of peace
a hand to hold accessible
generous loving A blessing Within the circle of my acquaintances
May I be a steady rock a ready shoulder dependable
trustworthy caring A blessing Within the circle of my community
May I be a light that shines a love that flows
discernible accessible healing
A blessing
